not mine but great camera work here too ....never saw a ballast train double headed by a pair of 071's:tumbsup:


Excellent!! But, that can be a dodgy spot to stand...


Nice to see somebody use the loop after the new wooden sleepers went in a few years ago.

That is Metrovicks Video.


The inside 071 had failed between Portlaosie and Ballybrophy (I heard it pass the building where I work that day). It failed mid section and a 2nd 071 was sent from Portlaoise to push the failure to Ballybrophy loop. The assisting loco then ran around to the front of the train and once the backlog of delayed passenger trains was clear it hauled the autoballasters, plus failed loco to Lisduff which was the trains intended destination.


The Wanderer.
