  1. @ Snapper - thank you for your speedy response and for clarifying matters. It seems the DSER is bedevilled by problems and only the Belmond seems to get through to Enniscorthy albeit without stopping.
  2. What happened to the Enniscorthy Rockin Food Festival trip? Posts about forthcoming events that ultimately fail to materialise make said posts unreliable. Everybody knows that that steam specials can fail but explanations should follow rather than being glossed over.
  3. I fail to see what the presence of modern screws have to do with anything, it's not like it's fastened to a gate. Whether it's a fake or original - it's obviously not in its original location. It's not worn enough looking and the edges are far too sharp. 100% fake.
  4. It's the local Tidy Towns Association behind the project https://www.facebook.com/Ballineen-and-Enniskeane-Tidy-Towns-Association-366972203925059/ so I guess trains won't be running to Albert Quay anytime soon.
  5. It looks in remarkably good condition - what company is it supposed to be from? Waterford & Kilkenny? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterford_and_Kilkenny_Railway
  6. This is progress - how? Cross platform interchange has now been made more awkward at great expense.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Another copy of Railway Lines of CIE & NIR available. €14 including p+p on the island of Ireland. SOLD 2/19.
  11. Irish Railway Record Society - Tour Brochure – 5th October, 2002 Simple, 8 page (16 printed A4 sides) route guide. €4 plus p+p.
  12. 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.
