A small update to the website this evening with pictures of the CWR train on the Nenagh Branch today.

083 paid a visit to the Nenagh Branch with the CWR train to drop another mile of rail strings between the 24 1/2 & 25 1/2 Mile Post on Tuesday 16th March.
The operation was similar to two weeks ago with the train dropping the strings and then going to Limerick to runaround and then returned to Portlaoise PWD depot via Thurles.

Just one picture of 22059 passing Oldforge outside Killarney with the 1705 Tralee - Cork.

While on a trip to Cork to bring a family member to a medical appointment, I got some photos at Mytrlehill and The Glen in Cork featuring 2600's and 22000's passing.

Another update to the April gallery today with a selection of images from between Mallow and Millstreet.

After an early morning essential trip to Cork City to bring a family member to an medical appointment, I returned to Killarney via Mallow and managed to get some photographs along the way, highlight being 222 hauling MKIV Set 4003 on the 0700 Heuston - Cork crossing the Viaduct in Mallow.

With another sunny day and a set of 2600's on the Tralee line replacing a failed 22000, it was too good an opportunity not to slip out for some photos of them around Killarney working the 1125 & 1525 Mallow - Tralee services.

Sunday 2nd May 2021:
Sunday's on the Tralee line are the most interesting with three daytime Tralee - Heuston and two Heuston - Tralee through services, compared to the weekday single through service each way. On a normal Sunday the route also sees several 2600 Class workings but due to the temporary timetable in operation today this wasn't the case. Pictures from today come from a variety of places between Tralee and Rathmore.

When I lived down in Killorglin as a child, there was a tracked excavator similar to the CIE Priestman crane just over the bridge near to the now Astellas plant.. I wonder now if it was used for lifting the tracks and then forgotten about or not worth recovering after the lifting work was finished.. The land is sat on is no longer accessible from the walk over the bridge, but I would imagine it is long gone by now..

Can anybody tell me what does this train actually do?

Why is the Weedspraying coach used?

what is the tank and spoil wagon used for?

And what does the container do?

Answers on a postcard please.

The train records the condition of the rails ultrasonically I believe, the weedspray coach 3187 is used for staff accommodation, the tank and spoil wagon for brake force and the container has the Sperry recording equipment
