Question

I have been meaning to ask this question for ages as the first photo

shows my Grandfather John Redmond engine driver on the right,in Ferns

Station sometime in the 1920s,while the second photo shows him at Bray

loco shed where he was based-he is in the middle of the front three guys,

I think someone put a x over him,while the guy at the rear with a x over

him is supposed to be from Enniscorthy.

I know nothing about Irish Steam locos and would love to know what

sort of loco is that in Ferns Station?and is it the same as the loco at

Bray Station.And if anyone can identify the loco,is there a close model.

And now everyone knows where my obsession with Irish railways comes from.

John Redmond died in 1929 when my Dad was three.From what I have been told

his normal run was to Enniscorthy from Bray.It was in the local Railway Hotel

while having spuds one day that he met my Grandmother-the rest is history.

Thanks.

Eamonn.
