    I did not realise British Railways containers were run on Irish Railwways. Nice find.

    An electric 100 Ton Crane, built in Hamburg Germany, started operating on the North Wall Quay Extension 1905. These are BR containers of fruit being offloaded and moved to transit sheds along the North Wall (long gone). Note the Flying Snail on the transit vehicle door. DUTC/CIE. R

    They're BR containers. Another shot of containers in open wagons here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/holycorner/7080082153/

    It appears to be a Bulleid open transporting a British Railways container, a bit like this:

    Hmm, are those containers available seperately?

    I'd always been told that those BR containers travelled frequently on the Irish rail network, but having such a good atmospheric shot... Well... It'd be a shame not to...

    Must say the photos on this thread are a revelation, and amazing quality as well.
