Here's the schedule for the IWT liners taken from one of the IRRS journals. From what I have seen from videos on Youtube the IWT liners don't head straight down Alexandra Road on arrival at North Wall. A lot of the time the loco seems to be taken off the liner and used to shunt in the yard before bringing the train into the port. I don't know the Tara mines trains timetable but I will see if can I get it for you.

8:15 Ballina-North Wall IWT Mon-Fri

09:35 North Wall-Ballina IWT Mon-Fri

11:05 Ballina-North Wall IWT Wed

14:00 North Wall-Ballina IWT Thur

Many thanks GM! The times listed for the Ballina-North Wall trains; are these the times for their departure from Ballina or arrival at North Wall?

Thank you very much for the info! Do you have any idea how long the loco spends shunting before it goes down Alexandra road? Also, any luck on the taras? ;)

Guys, how long does it take the liner to get from ballina to north wall? I will probably be up too late to see it depart Alexandra road but may be around to see one coming in! I'm thinking of trying to catch the one that departs ballina around 8!
