Not that picture DJ but same railtour. I had sort of written any C Class off for my mid 90's era but now I'm wondering did they come back down in their new colours much at all? I wonder was this 1991 tour a once off.

I suspect it was. One of those was also trotted out once or twice in the north to replace a failed RPSI steam loco on a couple of RPSI tours.

Last time they were regularly out'n'about in the south would have been 1984/5. Even then, confined to Inchicore shunting and pre-DART Dublin suburban.

Yes, 104 had loaded in Poyntzpass earlier that day, discharged ballast at Killeen near the top of the bank, and ran empty wrong road to Dundalk to run round before returning the wagons to the Pass, and loco. LE to Portadown. In those days the only cross-overs were at Poyntzpass and Dundalk.
