Don't know how fair this will get Welcome! In this work bench, my first project will be on a Enterprise (New) Test Train, which will be consisted of a Ex BR IC Swallow liveried Mk4 DVT into a full yellow DVT & two modified full yellow Mk3 coaches being pushed with a Enterprising Locomotive. Hopefully the next project will be converting some Mk4s into a dedietrich set (swoosh livery), then hopefully building a layout (DCC or dc?). When I get PST working, I'll post my plans for the NTT & progress.
Hi All, Has anybody got any good side on pics of the early NIR maroon/ blue Mk2 stock on the Enterprise or similar. I am looking at getting Steve at Railtec to do some number and crest sets but it would be good to get colour and font . All part of finishing Mk2s to hand. - Just need a red Hunslet... Cheers Robert
I attached this question to an old posting so it was probably missed but I would be interested if others with long memories could help me with a question. I took a number of colour photos of UTA and Guiness Dublin steam in 1963 and 1964 and my question is about international trains which I photographed at Portadown and Dunmurry on 25 and 26 March 1964 (the week after the Beatles "Can't Buy Me Love" was released, to follow up on the Rolling Stones comment). As they were taken in daylight (in March) I believe that they were WT 56 on the 09.15 Belfast to Dublin, and 57 on the 12.30 ex Dublin on Wednesday 25 March and W class 97 (with its higher capacity tender) and an unidentified WT on the same trains the following day. All four trains have a mixture of green and black and tan C I E stock. At the time I noted the trains as the Enterprise rather than the stopping trains I now believe that they were. Would The UTA locomotives have been replaced by CIE diesels at Dundalk? So my question is, were the non-stop Enterprises already CIE diesel hauled all the way at that date or were some of them still UTA steam hauled to Dublin (97 was, after all, adapted to do this)? Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this.
