  3. Sunday 2nd May 2021: Sunday's on the Tralee line are the most interesting with three daytime Tralee - Heuston and two Heuston - Tralee through services, compared to the weekday single through service each way. On a normal Sunday the route also sees several 2600 Class workings but due to the temporary timetable in operation today this wasn't the case. Pictures from today come from a variety of places between Tralee and Rathmore. Click https://bit.ly/3uiYz2Q to view.

  15. The Dean, closer to the tunnel entrance, is behind that office block sitting on top of the station. First time I saw a picture of it I thought the same as you. But seeing it in the flesh, it might grow on me. The jury is still out.
