A rather interesting movement occurred this evening.

After the 1500 Connolly - Sligo was failed at Enfield, it was rescued by 29010 which was sent from Maynooth off the 1800 Connolly - Maynooth service. This is the first time a 29000 has rescued a failed 22000 since 2008, when a 29000 hauled a failed set back to Connolly from Mullingar.

The August gallery has been updated with:

Saturday 7th August 2021:

With the Limerick Hurling team playing in Croke Park today, IE provided an 8ICR for a 1130 Limerick - Heuston Spl. and 2115 return. The special carried the Limerick team and fans travelling to the match. I went to Loughmore Castle near Templemore to photograph the Spl. and the 1100 Heuston - Cork.

Some weekend wanderings between Limerick, Cork and Kerry.

Friday 13th August 2021:
A visit to Cork City allowed a quick visit to the Station to view the 1215 to Midleton and 1225 to Heuston depart.

Sunday 15th August 2021:
While heading back to Tipperary from Kerry today, I stopped off at several locations between Killarney and Charleville.

Also on the Friday evening, I stopped off at Barnagh to walk the new bit of the Limerick Greenway from the viewing point to the old railway station through the tunnel.

If you go back earlier in the collection you can see how the route looked in 2016 prior to being fully refurbished and the western end of the tunnel brought fully back into use.

Evening folks,

A big bunch of images from the past week has just been uploaded to the website into two galleries.

August gallery:

Thursday 19th August 2021:
While travelling northwards on the N55, I got unexpectedly stopped at Ballymahon Level Crossing outside Edgeworthstown for the delayed 1710 Connoly - Sligo.

Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd August 2021:
While visiting Northern Ireland for the weekend, I got pictures from Castlerock, Downhill Beach, Bellarena, Portrush, Whitehead RPSI and Dundalk.

Monday 23rd August 2021:
The CCE division of Iarnrod Eireann have hired the RPSI Generating Steam Van 3173 to work with the Sperry Train on the next tour of the IE Network, as their own Departmental Van 3187 is not available for traffic. The unusual pairing is seen at Carn being hauled by 082 on the 1230 Inchicore - Portlaoise PWD Yard movement on the Monday afternoon.

Belturbet Heritage Railway Station:

In addition to my weekend trip to Northern Ireland, while on the way up I called into the Railway Museum at the former railway station in Belturbet. Click https://bit.ly/3De2Hpz to view these images.

Customer trains today. A green tube class at Drogheda and other ones outside the EU.

Was in “Newry Train Station”. It’s on the exact site of Bessbrook RAILWAY station.

It has a strange notice about Winnie the Pooh, instead of the more traditional threats as to what might befall those who trespassed upon the line of railway, or didn’t adjust their dress when leaving the conveniences.

Strange, weird stuff. And not a goods train in sight.

I blame brexit.











Bottom one is Ballymena, with the NCC water tower behind it - this side of it was used to water BNCR (main line) / NCC trains, while the long disused and thoroughly overgrown far side of it was used by the narrow gauge Ballymena & Larne trains - Ireland’s only narrow gauge expresses.
