Park Royal coaches

With white stripes (which I forgot to mention!) below the windows, and two passenger coaches rather than one, it could well be Ballina indeed. I'd be inclined to think that it could also be that last (Limerick based) PR set which worked the Limerick - Rosslare link.


The Nenagh branch is a third possibility.


Incidentally, PR stock, like BR vans, acquired white lines below window level in the 90s, but none ever had the orange lines above, which Cravens acquired at the same time.

I remember photographing it (hauled by 153 I think) about 1976 near Duncormick. It had five laminates - FIVE! - and about a dozen passengers.... not sure what van was on.


It could quite often be that length in those days Rosslare to Limerick, but with sure a desperately poor service, the public had long been put off and there seemed little need for that many carriages, especially when Connolly - Dundalk locals were jammed solid!
