The RPSI operated a private charter using their set of Cravens to and from Galway last week,locomotive 080 provided the power-here we see the train pass through Tara junction while returning to Heuston,

I was fortunate to be able to work the real train...and the model one....

085 passes in the opposite direction working the Northwall-Waterford BELL liner.

When B134 developed low power problems,it and B188 were sent to the MPD for attention on the load bank...

Here we see B134 being tested at the load bank-such a wonderful sound from its 645 engine...👍👍

085 passes through hauling the Northwall-Waterford BELL liner.

This is why I always say Noel's updates are so interesting and enjoyable, because it's an actual Railway man doing the modelling.

Rich,

Bank holiday Monday freight action. 
 

According to the 1981 CIE working timetable there was an 11:35 liner departure from Belfast Adelaide freight depot to Northwall,

Here we see the BELL freight liner unusually being hauled by Metro Vick locomotive 226 pass through Tara junction station making good progress.

Evocative scenes - actually looks like it is raining. Presume that is the lighting, but certainly works. Indeed, can recall very few layouts that portray a dull wet day and fewer still that manage it as successfully as this.

Thank you David, very much appreciated 

Yes the night time light setting has achieved that result which I am delighted with.

The early morning Shelton abbey to Marino point ammonia train gets priority through Tara junction station,

The train is being hauled by locomotive 201,

I replaced the original MIR barrier wagons with some spare  IRM 42’ bogie wagons they look the part on the iconic train.

How long were the 201's painted like that?

Orange livery with full yellow faces.

Was it only for a year, around 2006?
