Cuisle, 1947. There had been in recent months what remains even today the heaviest snow ever recorded in Ireland.

Many towns were entirely cut off for weeks, and running out of essential supplies.

Perhaps this is, ironically, somewhat typical now!

What is a DIESEL?

I haven’t a clue, can’t even make out where their fireboxes are, but this might help!

I've been gathering stuff for years, Midland man, and I have some of my father's and grandfather's stuff too.

Really my grandad had a love for history and had a book or two on the midland thus my love for the midland. He also did drawing of locos at streamtown junction but they were very basic.

Never ceases to amaze me the amount of unpublished stuff that is still out there. Keep sharing JB, they are all little rays of light in these challenging times.
