Over the last few months the turntable at Claremorris station has been refurbished by the local permanent way staff,

The work involved power washing the well area and improving drainage around the area and replacing some broken crossbeam timbers on the table,

The siding which gives access to the turntable has been renewed with 2nd hand concrete sleepers and a second hand buffer stop originally from Ballina being used at the Manulla end of the table.

It's a credit to the staff involved in the project to see such a fine job on such an historical piece of infrastructure.

I was wondering if that was the reason. Why is 162 being turned' date=' something failed in one cab? Were they 141s withdrawn by then?[/quote']

 

162 was hauling failed loco 077-(in the distance)- back to Inchicore from Westport,

The driver complained of fumes in the leading cab so it was decided to turn the loco in Claremorris,which was done successfully.

Yes Kevin most of the 141/181s had been stopped at that stage.
