its so trains, i had to share this poster, I believe the 1881 coal miners strikes inspired the pennsylvania coal strikes, which in part lead to the establishment of the Trade Union movement of America and else where, especial;ly as so many Irish from Castlecomer ended up working in pennsylvania before the coal strikes. I did a google search for 'castlecomer mine and quarry union.pdf' nice page, includes great photo of mine with rail track. indeed it looks much like my layout today, now thta i am rewiring the power blocks into occupancy block and installing current dectors and more. the poster is from a 1912 coal strike, as it seems there were many strikes.
Headhunters Barber Shop and Railway Museum is situated on Darling Street in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh just around the corner from the Cathedral Hall where Erne MRC hold their annual exhibition. The museum has been mentioned in posts on IRM previously but I thought I would share a few photos of some of the huge collection of material which is beautifully presented in this building. Well worth a visit if you are ever at the exhibition or in the area.
