  1. There was some comments about the capacity of the water tank it carries, but that has been worked around. No issue regarding physical vehicle clearance. Below shot was the first of 2019's tours
  2. The 2019 spray season was covered by 790 quite successfully. The Sperry is being replaced by the new Track Recording Vehicle coming soon. Get your shota of 700 while you can.....
  3. Jonathan, can you post a photo of the ESB loco? Suspect it's one of either Allenwood or Portarlington's Number 1, a Ruston 48DL like below. Of course, if it's Allenwood 1 that is preserved in Stradbally, Portarlington 1 was preserved, but not sure on its current status as it was stored at Clonbullogue for the Irish Narrow Gauge Trust
  4. Morning all, Unfortunately real-life got in the way a bit of uploading and captioning photos of late, but trying to catch up before the year end! August was a relatively quiet month, with only two major events, these being the transfer of a De Dietrich set to Inchicore for wheel turning and the naming of Steam Loco LM44 at Stradbally Full month: https://www.flickr.com/photos/hurricanemk1c/albums/72157711321674282 September was a bit busier, with a weekend trip across to London to travel behind the London Transport Museum's 12 "Sarah Siddons", along with a trip to Whitehead and the start of a week-long explore of the network [ Full month: https://www.flickr.com/photos/hurricanemk1c/albums/72157711321674267 October is in progress, but here's a sneak preview of the month, with a visit to the Mountdillon Bórd na Móna system Full album - https://www.flickr.com/photos/hurricanemk1c/albums/72157712120290043egards Regards, Kieran
  5. Always forget you have a N gauge layout Noel - great work!
  6. Ah I saw someone taking a photo of the Not to Be Moved Board in Killarney! I can see my tag there!
  7. I know when it's going back north but not when it's coming south! Just need to get it confirmed first
  8. Hi all, I've been quite quiet here of late, with other matters taking my spare time once out of work. However, I did complete an all-line rover in the UK during July, matching up with a concert I was at. The overall plan was to try and get as much of the stock that is due for replacement in the next year or two (which is an awful lot!) Day 1 was a simple trip from Nottingham to London, and a quick spin out to Ebbsfleet International for a shot of an unrefurbished Class 373 Eurostar Day 2 started and finished in London, with a trip out to Norwich and the surrounding area before the Stadler units replace things Day 3 saw me hit South Wales, again before a major fleet renewal changes things, ending up in Chester for the night Day 4 was a trip from Chester to Belper via Liverpool and York (with a visit to the National Railway Museum and Betty's Bar) Day 5 saw me head south in the afternoon (having spent the morning around an area I grew up in), and positioning for the Sleeper to Inverness that night....... Day 6 saw me potter around Scotland, starting out from Perth instead of Inverness due to major sleeper delays (being nearly 4 hours late into Perth due to a variety of issues). With the early Hainan flight back to Dublin the following morning, this was the end of the rover Album link - https://www.flickr.com/photos/hurricanemk1c/albums/72157709863437391 Regards, Kieran
  9. A great transformation from when I was in there to get the RPSI stock out! Saw the Mk4 rake in there one evening heading home Yes, this is the blue shed, and Heuston SER (as the box is known as) is around P10
  10. 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)
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Good evening all, A selection of photos from a recent trip to Nottingham, Chesterfield and Derby, with photos including the Nottingham Suburban Railway, trams and a couple of interesting workings. Click on the photos below to view them full size, or here to view them all: https://www.flickr.com/photos/hurricanemk1c/albums/72157689778011553 Regards, Kieran
  14. It would be categorised as a near-miss in any investigation as well. One of the many strange sayings, such as Head over Heels in love
