Loco 218 on 14:25 Cork - Dublin service today,  has large HVO signs up to 90% displayed another step in reducing IE carbon footprint 

Should there be any less than 280 parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere then plants will not grow and you will starve. Think on !

He was just reporting that a 201 loco has gained some decals which may be of interest to modellers, not delivering a lecture on climate or botany. Let's keep the rants to a minimum please.

Cheers!

And here it is hauling the IWT liner train to Ballina-it was the first HVO liner train in Ireland 👍

Wonder when it will appear in Murphy Models form?

I presume they are just vinyls/stickers applied? Wonder if we will see a 201 running on HVO painted up like these?

Only realised now that the first container in that train is from the best region in the world!

Would love a full body livery like this on the 201 or even a Hydrogen inspired full body livery on whichever 071 gets the go-ahead for that project (is that still happening…?)

Who knows what liveries we'll see on the MM 201's next year? You could get lucky.
