Junctionmad Posted September 9, 2014 Share Posted September 9, 2014 (edited) In my great quest to tie down the actual layout of the abandoned engine shed area at Limerick Junction, I formed an abiding view of the mess that irish railways are in. The area must have been dug up about 4 times in 40 years , then let rot , then dug up then rot. I mean here it is in 64 Relatively nice and orderly , facing point lock covers etc, no weeds sidings usable Then some bright spark in 69 churns up the engines sheds to weld continous rail OK you think , investment , planning etc And here it is a few years later !!!! Then fast forward to today and they have changed it all again and under gone a refurbish to a PW department, even ballasting the siding beside the south cabin This reminds me of the fiasco with the 201, etc and even mk3, IR engineers push for "favourite" projects, spend money , no real plan, then no money, all thrown to waste. This railway is just some engineers "latest toy " really ( like buying railcars that are capable of 125mph , yet not a screed of a budget to implement that , yet perfectly good locos left rusting ) And its no wonder Im bamboozled about the engine shed layout !!!
