Interesting time capsule of the last days of the traditional steam age railway, the RPSI special narrows the time period to June 1972 when 186 worked the "North Kerry" raitour to Tralee visiting Castleisland & Fenit.

 

Probably more interesting seeing Tralee still had a G Class for shunting the two goods yards and trip working to Fenit and possibly Castleisland.

 

Goods traffic at both Tralee & Castleisland seems to have been heavy at the time with a hint of the modern era creeping in with Guinness, Bulk Grain & ISO containers handled at the gantry in the North Kerry Yard.
