I am gradually building up a road freight section to compliment the railway operations on Tara junction comprising of vehicles from the CIE,IR and IE period which span the best part of thirty years, I will start this thread off with a vehicle from the 1990s Irish rail era, Based out of Ballina freight depot was this Ford rigid truck which served the Mayo area and was branded for Rail Link traffic, Rail Link was an overhaul and rebranding for the former uniload and transtrack department with Ballina as the railhead for the traffic. The Rail Link truck makes its way through afternoon traffic while returning to the Lakeview freight yard to reload with more supplies for the High street.
Not sure if these have been posted before, but they were only uploaded to YouTube in April. Both are by the same author - Phil Thomas Trains. The first video is of trains around Dublin in May and December 2002: The second is of trains at Kildare taken in May 2002: Having watched both now I found them most enjoyable, and good reference material for any 2000s-era modellers. Enjoy!
