ICRs under the new bridge at Kildare

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

I spent a morning in Kildare station a couple of weeks ago where a hideous new bridge is under construction. I took some pics of the ICRs while there. They might not be everyone's cup of tea (mine included!) but they are the future. Here's some pics which might be of use to some!

There is of course the permanent way depot in Kildare, which played host to a few track machines and on track plant while I was there. I think this is the newish MPV which will replace the weedspraying train? Sorry it's only a glimpse, more information would be great!

 

 

 

 

 

While I was there I captured the more interesting stuff on video. Cue on track plant, liners and 201s on Dublin Cork services.

 

 

Might make another trip next week to get the additional liners and hopefully some 071s working hard.

It is, I'm all for wheelchair access etc but they could at least make the new structures look a bit better and allow them to match their surroundings!

 

I've never actually seen anybody use the lifts at Ballybrophy - and the new bridge is like jabbing myself in the eye with my own sore thumb every time I see it.
