  1. The arrow I think purely states which signal the disc (shunt signal) is associated with, rather than any route setting. In the below, the main signal is HN314, with HN314(S) arrow pointing towards the signal / line (in this case, Platform 4)
  2. Ultimately, you can transport 700-odd tonnes (train can be up to 912 tonnes IIRC, but that includes loco and physical wagon weight) in one go. That's 24 lorries (assuming a payload capability of 30 tonnes). Simple economics
  3. It's a nice job (travelled down on the set on the 1805 on Portlaoise). I personally like the contrast, finding the DD interiors very dark

  11. Good evening all, One of the busiest days in recent transport history was Sunday 26 August, with the Papal Visit and final mass in the Phoenix Park. Although the expected 500,000 did not turn up, a respectable figure was still transported by rail-based transport, with several interesting features, including: -8x29000 to M3 Parkway -10 minute DART and Connolly-Clonsilla service (diverging into a 20 minute service to Maynooth and M3 Parkway) -Use of the Luas Racecourse stop for the first time Click on the photo below to view all the photos from the day, and well done to all involved. The few issues that became apparent were well handled. It is estimated that 10,000 passengers passed through Navan Road Parkway with little delay in 90 minutes following the mass Album link - https://www.flickr.com/photos/hurricanemk1c/albums/72157670694689937/with/43630227324/ Regards, Kieran
  12. Good morning all, After a busy period for me, I'm starting to catch up with photos taken at the beginning of the month. The majority of the shots are from Connolly, with one from Heuston. Highlights include the use of ICR's on the Enterprise, an Inspection Car passing through and a pair on non-CAWS fitted C3K's.
