Question

Hi Guys,

In a post to the thread on my new layout "Cilldargan" Mayner suggested a source of traffic ~

"and a Ballinacourty-Cork Tivilo Oil & Magnesite Train 001 with tank wagons and covered hoppers,"

this is a new one on me, can anyone give me a bit of info on it, please.

I presume the 'covered hoppers' are/were the # 26590 - 26611 series Magnesite hoppers illustrated in ' Locos & Rolling Stock of CIE & NIR' , were the tank wagons part standard tank wagons or something special ~ maybe demountable tanks on flat cars, perhaps ???

 

Any info, much appreciated,

Cheers,

FrankS

Frank, attached is a (not brilliant) picture taken in Cork in 1971 of the Tivoli-Ballinacourty train showing the oil tankers and magnesite wagons. The latter were indeed in the 26590 - 26611 series, as per the entry in Locos & Rolling Stock of CIE & NIR.

 

 

 

Hope this is of some use.

The covered hopper is a magnesite wagon, the open is a tippler once used for carrying lead/zinc from Silvermines (Mogul) to Foynes when loaded the ore was covered by a tarpaulin.
