Thread: Early '70s treasure trove!

    Finding those photos was a happy coincidence, as there's a couple that include CIÉ pallet vans:

    ...And when I got home this evening there was a package containing a Parkside Dundas BR Palvan kit, which I'm hoping to bash into one of those wagons.

    Aye, will do... was asked if I'd do a write-up on the conversion for New Irish Lines as well, so the pressure is on!

    Nice shot with the spray of dirt either side of the buffers from the wagons in front when they are coupled up

    I love the photo of the new Austin being delivered on an unfitted flat, cars, vans and farm machinery were often delivered by rail in those days. http://www.flickr.com/photos/holycor...n/photostream/

    Although most of the wagons shown were built in the 50s its interesting to see a few GSWR & GNR types still in use http://www.flickr.com/photos/holycor...n/photostream/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/holycor...n/photostream/

    Although it looks pretty ancient this particular type which seem to be doube sheeted insulated vans for preishible traffic seem to have lasted quite long http://www.flickr.com/photos/holycor...n/photostream/.

    Weshty:

    Yes I saw the tin vans they seem to mutate and do all sorts of strange things in Sligo At one stage there were at least 3 different variations of the luggage version alone.

    P.S. The demountable tanks may have been for Industrial Alcohol from Cooley, Ballina or Donegal.

    I am not able to give a firm date at the moment but would expect Mid 2013 for both the Heating & Luggage and Lugage Brake.

    I received a lot of information since completing the original test builds and have still to finalise some of the detail.

    Damn John, nice atmospheric shot, shows off the detailing very well.
