  1. This is progress - how? Cross platform interchange has now been made more awkward at great expense.
  2. Results here: https://www.purcellauctioneers.ie/catalogue/8F94772A0A3BA77D096E6240F0A8640E/81B29AB6FA187A02A829C1899B734425/specialist-auction-of-irish-interest-books-with-dedicated-se/ Lots of bargains it seems with many pre-sale estimates over the top. The Dublin & Blessington Lots went for a decent price: Lot 53 Vast and Extensive File Relating to the Dublin and Blessington Steam Tramway c.1930's, Dividend Warrants, Correspondence, Invoices etc. etc. - 7boxes Hammer: €680
  3. You mightn't pay more than €100 but plenty would. It's the top of a staff from a MGWR branch that I haven't seen much else from down the years i.e. it's scarce - closure date has little to do with value. A staff for the branch sold for €360 a while back. I am out of the railway scene for twenty years now and should have described it as a 'ticket' rather than a tablet - apologies. It was a crude version of the Wise's staff which was used on the Cavan & Leitrim Railway and the Welsh Highland.
  4. In fairness, a lot of the prices achieved were low - the Kilfree/Ballaghadereen tablet at €170 being a good example - while various assorted bits like those being given away by WaYSideE were overpriced. As for stuff ending up on DoneDeal/Adverts after the last auction - my experience tells me that some resellers made decent killings. There's a big market for Irish railwayana in Britain and with online catalogues/bidding it makes life hard for Irish enthusiasts save those with deep pockets.
  5. Another copy of Railway Lines of CIE & NIR available. €14 including p+p on the island of Ireland. SOLD 2/19.
  6. Irish Railway Record Society - Tour Brochure – 5th October, 2002 Simple, 8 page (16 printed A4 sides) route guide. €4 plus p+p.
  7. Hi - I can't find this information online but surely somebody here will know. How many seats in a 22000 series buffet car and a pic would be appreciated? Thanks.
  8. “IRELAND GEM OF THE SEA 1930” by ALFRED S. MOORE Touring Ireland by Rail in 1930. Printed in Dublin. 52 pages, profusely illustrated, with photographs, period advertising and a fine route map. Rusty staples and mildewing to front cover. €10 plus p+p or can be collected from Enniscorthy.
  9. All of the above still available and I'm open to offers! Also available a nice clean CIE Passenger Train timetable for 1960 - €10 including p+p. SOLD Ireland's Railway Heritage - €10 including p+p. IE 2007 Public Mainline Timetable - MINT unread condition. €8 plus p+p. Selection of tickets - priced to sell at €6 including p+p.
  10. I think you will find that "Nancy" has been cluttering up Alan Keef's since October 1997, not 1999 but I wouldn't expect you to know that.
  11. What an eejit! Antiquated locomotive and carriages - would he prefer the rubbish ICRs that are inflicted on most of us? He's correct on the poor timings which were far better 30 years ago. Let him get the Rosslare 'Europort' service.
