Irish Railway Review Number 8

Irish Railway Review Number 8 features:-Irish Railway Review Number 8 DVD

Birdhill and Nenagh. We visit this section of line as permanent way work brings classic four wheel wagons and pairs of GM locos into action.

Mallow and the Kerry line. Complicated platform work at Mallow gives way to rural charm as we wend our way to Farranfore.

Network Notes. We have a look at the work which has been done to bring trains back to Midleton and the Western Rail Corridor. Ballymena gets its local service at last. Level crossings new and old are examined plus the Tullamore Cement returns.

Loco hauled Mark 3s versus 22000 railcars. The latest stock fails to dislodge engines and coaches - for a while yet. Much classic haulage remains to be seen as the railcars expand their routes.

The Ennis Line. We see railcars shuttle back and forth past disused stations and the once weekly arrival of a pair of small GMs with a train of Mark 3 stock.

Irish RIrish Railway Review Number 7 DVDailway Review Number 7 features:-

Kilkenny to Cherryville. We visit this section of the Dublin to Waterford line in late 2006, just before station modernisations wipe away the details of Irish country stations at their best. Trains include Mark 2 & 3 coaches, cement, timber and liner trains, plus 071, 121 and 201 class locos.

Network Notes. Old and not-so-old coaches in their last days, new loco liveries, Sligo line stock ready to change, the 80 class rumbles on and more on recent developments.

Limerick Junction Developments. Rationalisation does not make life much easier at the Junction as 9 locos turn up from all directions, while the passenger trains run strictly to time.

Locomotives on the Cork Main Line. Before the influx of railcars, we see some high speed running along Ireland’s railway racetrack.

Docklands station. We see Ireland’s latest terminal station in Dublin’s financial district.
