    There's a few brake vans still hanging around, if you had a closed wagon and maybe a cattle wagon (did any survive?) you could have a demo pick up goods.

    Great to see the Irish Shell restored. I do prefer the (oddly?) spaced original lettering though. Also the Irish Shell & BP livery

    Don't know if this is the correct place to post this but on the subject of the Shell wagon heres a picture from Omagh Market Branch station and although side view, there are clearly both SHELL and ESSO Wagons in the sidings here.

    Lovely shot, Tony. Is that the Omagh goods shed spanned by three tracks?

    This is Market Branch Goods Yard which is the site of the new library. The buildings on the right have been renovated and exist today.
