More camcorder footage of dear old 186. Here she is arriving at Gorey on her way back from Waterford, 17th May 2005. I think this was the first time I saw her in steam.
Modernisation has changed the view considerably since then, with the platforms extended, raised and resurfaced and the semaphores uprooted. The number 10 points near the water tower were removed about a year later, reducing the goods loop to a dead end siding. 
The carriages are mostly Inchicore built vehicles, including 1335, a GSR side corridor from the 1930s, and also some of the few surviving laminates, the last carriages to be built from scratch at Inchicore, extremely important survivors in their own right.
