    Hi all,
    I have now uploaded some shots from yesterday and today. Yesterday's show 071 in North Wall with the weedsprayer on its way to Longford. Today's are from a very wet Balbriggan and include orange 084 on the Tara and steam loco 186 on the positioning move from Whitehead to Dublin.

    Pictures here:

    Evening folks,

    The long Summer evenings allow the West of Ireland to Waterford laden Timber Train to be photographed in the Irish Midlands. For the first of what will hopefully be many occasions during Summer 2012, 083 was pictured at Monastervin with the laden timber from Ballina to Westport.

    Also on this date, Iarnrod Eireann ran a non-stop Sectional Running Time Trial between Heuston - Cork - Heuston using ex works 234 and an 8 piece MKIV Set (4003). The train departed Heuston at 2045 and was timetabled to complete the 165 and a quarter miles in 2hrs and 29 minutes on the outward journey and 2hrs and 26 minutes on the return journey. A similar Time Trial is also planned for the Galway Route using a 22000 Class. This is part of an exercise to look at reducing journey times. The Time Trial Special was videoed passing through Monastervin at 100mph, two minutes ahead of schedule.

    Good evening all,

    I have just finished uploading my photos of the RPSI's South Clare Railtour to
    This collection covers both the Saturday and Sunday of the tour, including the Light Engine movement of 186 from Connolly to Athlone on Saturday morning.

    Also some general odds and sods from the weekend of the Modern Irish Railway scene from Portarlington, Killomenaghan, Athenry, Ennis & Rosskelton:

    Hi all
    461 attempted to return home today with the RPSI Mark 2 set, but according to reports it only made it to Dundalk. Some shots of it in Dublin earlier today have now uploaded.

    461 on the turntable at Connolly, a turn which was not without incident!

    And then passing through Killester later:

    The move of 5408 had to be cancelled and here is a shot of 8208 shunting it back into the carriage shed:

    Rest of the shots start here:

    Great shots csalem.

    I'm not surprised about two aspects of todays tour.

    The first was that 461 didn't make it, i'm surprised the RPSI even risked it after the less than impressive timekeeping of the last two tours that used 461.

    The 2nd in that 5408 didn't make it either. It seems nobody in the RPSI asked NIR if MK2d's were cleared? I still have the memories, or should that be scars, of an RPSI tour several years ago from Dublin to Whitehead RPSI using MK2d's with 85 Merlin and NIR refusing the train to proceed past Belfast Central as IE MK2's were not permitted! A 80 Class set did the Central - Whitehead - Central part of the tour if I remember correctly.

    Anyway, after the busy weekend photographing the RPSI's South Clare Railtour it was back to the more mundane stuff today with photographs of the stored Barytes Wagons awaiting their fate at Portlaoise Per Way Yard and 22002 + 22008 arriving at Portarlington with the 1725 Heuston - Limerick.

    The Photos begin at:
