  8. Hi guys, Were these voidmeters ever used on Irish railways?
  9. Any idea what year this photo is? Early 50s? Also what type of passenger coaches are being pulled? Last seems to be a Tin Van. https://www.ebay.ie/itm/133868601666?hash=item1f2b30c142:g:Jn0AAOSwpmFhNLsc
  10. Any chance IRM can produce a second genny in the later livery to allow a prototypical rake?
  11. In the later videos there seems to be two generator vans on each rake. Was this the norm?
  12. How many coaches would have been on the Dublin express when pulled by a NIR110 in the later livery?
  13. I heard also that BnM has a directors carriage of same size in storage still.
