  1. EU funding for green economy? Carbon tariffs are looming.
  2. Hi guys, Can someone advise whether there keys were used on the Class 071 and Class 121 as well as Class 141/181? Are examples of these hard to find?
  3. Hi guys, I am looking for some detailed explanations as to how the signal staffs for single lines were used and for information of the different types used by the early railways and then by CIE. Did the position of the rings play a meaningful part in their use? Would anyone be able to point to some useful resources? With thanks
  4. Second one is almost definitely Rosbercon (New Ross) facing Waterford direction. Station building on left was for passengers with a small shelter on the far platform, building on right was the goods shed. Bridge is now located in Rosslare Strand. In the photo below the small shelter has been removed.
  5. Hi guys, Anyone identify the location of this cement train and approx date? From Ebay.
  6. Were there any attempts to use oil / diesel to fire steam engines at any stage? Would oil be much less efficient than coal to operate an engine?
  7. Hi guys, Can anyone identify the narrow gauge locomotives used on the Baldonnell construction railway? Photos from 1918 I believe. I have read they were from different manufacturers and eventually went to India. The two narrow gauge trains would convey up to 200 workmen each on up to 25 open wagons with back-to-back seats. Waiting lorries would convey anyone who could not be accommodated on the trains. Supplies for the canteens were also carried. The number of troops stationed at Baldonnell occasionally reached the 1700 mark and at times included American and Canadian soldiers.
  8. MK3 and laminates would break me finacially but would really love them!!!
  9. Which of these great models would have been seen on the Irish freight liners and during which years?
