Long Freight Train

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

A long for me anyway freight train. 35 beautiful looking IRM wagons hauled by two Murphy Model 071 locos (10x42ft Container flats, 8xFertiliser wagons, 2xTara wagons, 15xCement wagons). Running a superb mix of Irish wagons like this would only have been a fantasy dream only a few years ago. The ten lead 42ft's had become somewhat stiff again (axles) after being lubed a few months ago as per IRM recommendations, I guess the lube may have dried out, but the two 071s in consist managed ok. It is fabulous to have such good looking genuine Irish rolling stock. Happy days playing trains. :) The keg load looks well on the platform.

Next time might try a consist with 3 x 071s and put every single IRM wagon I have behind the trio, even the ballasts.

PS: Might try a rake of 40 MM coaches, the knock super special.
