  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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)
  4. 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
  5. 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, 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
