  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.
  13. “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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Ultra rare share certificate from the Parsonstown & Portumna Bridge Railway. Known as the 'Stolen Railway' this railway linked Birr in County Offaly with Portumna in Co.Galway it operated from 1868-1878. After this time it ceased business and its assets including the track, station buildings etc. were removed by local people, creditors etc. Paper share certificate in nice collectable condition. Signed by the notorious local landlord - the Marquess of Clanricarde - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_of_Clanricarde Just in case any of you haven't seen this gem that I'm selling on eBay here it is again - and offered here for only €100 which includes p+p by registered mail on the island of Ireland. It's 100 sterling on eBay so your chance to pick up a rare gem for a song.
  18. Stephenson Locomotive Society magazine from October 1974 – including a 4 page article on the Isle of Man Railway; Manx Steam Railway News Spring 1999 – includes an item on the return of IMR carriage F21 from Ireland. Both in good condition – and scarce! €3 plus p+p or can be collected from Enniscorthy. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 16mm Today – 9 copies + Modelling In 16mm (members guide). Issues are as follows: 2006 – No.118 – November 2007 – Nos.120/121/122 2008 – Nos.123/124 2009 – Nos.127/128/129 All in mint condition – €12 for the lot. Too heavy to post but can be collected from Enniscorthy or Dublin (adjacent to Connolly Station – payment in advance!)
  19. The farcical new Down platform will at least be handy for the inevitable Greenway between Limerick Junction and Waterford.
  20. (11) 5″ x 7″ black and white photographs taken along the Harcourt Street line circa 1979 – long before the Luas was even contemplated. Prints are good quality i.e. better than the scans here. €10 plus p+p or can be collected from Enniscorthy. Don't forget to check my other posts for books, timetables etc. still available unless otherwise stated.
  21. It didn't have 10-15 passengers per day - where did you get that from? It was a poorly patronised line of late due to a useless timetable and deliberate neglect by CIE for decades. Your thinking is blinkered and typical of so many who talk about the route like it was a Loughrea type local branchline. I could go on but I'll only get banned. Have a nice day.
