071 loco-080

Recommended Posts

The entire cabs are rebuilt, improved sound proofing and anti vibration measures are installed during this over haul program of the slate grey repaints. Most of the 071s going around are heavily corroded around their cabs. 072 and 073 are currently in a very bad way in this regard. Drivers have reported that it has made big improvements in the cab conditions for them of the overhauled 071s compared to the existing locos yet to be worked on.

It's a fab photo alright.

Grey livery is so nice.

It's great to see 087 was rebuilt

as by all accounts it was a wreck.


When I saw 087 in Inchicore about two years ago-I thought to myself that was the end of it, It was only a shell, no engine, cooling fans,radiators all were missing,

It was great to see it brought back to life again.
