Great O'Dea pics there, especially the Mark IIs coming off the old Harwich train ferry. I'm guessing they came over on Brit bogies as accommodation bogies? Wonder if they went from Derby to port via road or rail...

According to my book on Mk 2s, they were "mounted on accommodation bogies for haulage to Harwich Town where they were loaded onto BR train ferries". The book does not mention whether this was by rail or road, but it does say that the earlier NIR order for Mk 2s was moved by rail on accommodation bogies from Derby to Ardrossan, so it is very likely that the CIE coaches went the same way, but to Harwich.

Cheers Dhu Varren. Could be an interesting modelling project.... :)
