New section/What's happening on the network

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys we have added this section so you can post a heads up if you know of or see any unusual loco/stock or stock movements on the network both North and South. We hope to do this from week to week.

For example 8208 hauling the Ballina Liner today and 082 heading to Belfast. So if you are in the know, or just happen to see something post it up in this section and hopefully someone else will maybe get to see it or get a photo somewhere else along the route.

Great idea Anthony,

Let me get the train rolling

 

071 class:

 

072 worked the 11:05 Ballina-Northwall IWT liner this morning,

081 worked the Waterford-Westport empty timber train arriving in Westport at 17:40 this evening,

 

201 class:

 

The working of the year so far for me anyway when

8208 worked the 08:15 Ballina-Northwall IWT liner 17/18 LX wagons were loaded,

It had replaced 088 which had failed near Sallins yesterday morning,the liner eventually arriving into Ballina freight yard at 16:40-photos over the next few days,

222 worked the Northwall-Ballina IWT CPW liner today,arriving in Ballina freight yard at 14:35.

086 passed north through Clongriffin with 12 empties for tara at 14:00.

 

082 or 076 I think, again too far for me to see, followed at 14:05 with 7 spoil and 2 flat track wagons. One loaded and one empty. For the works in Drogheda station at the bay platform.

hello everyone, maybe should continue this topic? for example: today there was 220 with morning IWT and 081 with evening, 072 left with a train with rails, and there were also 079 and 073 with taras, by the way, a few weeks ago 071 and 073 worked simultaneously for taras, it looked great!

Not strange at all, the current schedule has no train in NW from Saturday morning till Monday afternoon.. The weekend sees both sets of flat wagons and normally a timber stabled in Ballina..

This coming Monday is an exception, as due to engineering work in Tullamore the down train will run on Monday instead of Saturday.. Probably the first down train on a Monday in about 9months
