Not really Robinsons Irish locos were a lot smaller and quite different in outline to his Great Central locos, but might pass for an ex DSER loco some of which had Belpair fireboxes.

Class J 8 - 445 - D&SER 0-6-0 - built 1905 by Grand Canal Street Works as D&SER No.65 CORK - 1925 to GSR as No.445, 1945 to CIE - withdrawn 1957 - seen here at Grand Canal Street in 1938.


The Bachmann SECR C is probably closer in general outline to the WLWR locos in GSWR/GSR condition.

The MGWR bought a pair of locos from a cancelled order for the WLWR. The locos originally had square topped fireboxes but were brought into line with the rest of the ex WLWR 0-6-0s with round topped fireboxes in GSR days. I have not been able to find an on line photo of the 0-6-0s but they were very close to the ex WLWR 2-4-0s with the same boiler and cab. Class G 3 - 276 - WL&WR 2-4-0 - built 1892 by Dubs & Co. as WL&WR No.23 SLIEVE-NA-MON - 1900 to GS&WR as No.276 - 1925 to GSR, 1925 rebuilt, 1945 to CIE - withdrawn 1949 - seen here at Limerick in 1932.
