Note the rolling stock.

In the first pic, the second wagon is an old GSWR low-roofed “soft-top” of 1890s origin. A handful of these were still to be seen up to just about into the 1960s.

In the above (colour) pic, looks like a GNR coach now in CIE green.

In the final pic, we’ve one of Leslie’s GSWR guards vans. At least one of these appears to have been use well into the 1960s.

Yip - at THAT time there was that one, another in West Cork, and another in Tralee, from what I can gather. It’s more than possible they weren’t the only ones.

Once the standard CIE 20T and 30T ones multiplied in number, CIE withdrew all non standard ones (most of which were either too small, or clapped out anyway) as quickly as they could. A handful of GNR vans went into CIE use but only for 2 or 3 years - I’m only aware of 1 or 2 even being repainted with a “flying snail” - but Leslie has a model of that TOO!
