Thread: Early '70s treasure trove!

  1. #1

    Early '70s treasure trove!

    So there I was, just innocently browsing through photos on Flickr, when I came across these excellent photos of Irish wagons taken c. 1971 (with a few later shots taken c. 1981). Some of the stock is very unusual, such as the accomodation cabin sitting on a 4-wheel flat, and de-mountable tank wagons...

    (Best wear a bib when viewing, as you're going to drool!)

    Just when I was bemoaning the lack of good pictures of Irish wagons of this period to myself the other day. Superb stuff, it's probably the one period that would persuade me to model Irish properly some day.

    Have a look through the guy's Flickr photostream... lots more interesting stuff, including early diesel-era BR (for those of you that way inclined ).
