Irish Railway Review Number 8

Irish Railway Review Number 8 features:-

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.

Locations featured include Antrim, Ardrahan, Ardsolus and Quinn, Attymon, Ballybrophy, Ballycar, Ballycoskerry, Ballyhale, Ballyhaunis, Ballymena, Banteer, Birdhill, Carrigtwohill, Charleville, Craughwell, Ennis, Farranfore, Glounthaune, Gort, Killarney, Lavistown, Mallow, Midleton, Monastereven, Nenagh, Port Laoise, Portarlington, Rathmore, Sixmilebridge and Tullamore.

Irish Railway Review Number 7

Irish Railway 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 Irelandís railway racetrack.

Docklands station. We see Irelandís latest terminal station in Dublinís financial district.

CTC reaches Mayo. A short feature on the new system and the remodelled Manulla Junction.

CI… and I… freight visitors to NIR. A brief look back to the days when distinctive CI… and I… freight trains brightened up the scene in Northern Ireland.

Irish Railway Review Number 5

This DVD features a review of the current Irish railway scene, concentrating on:

The Galway Line - now that mini-CTC has been in operation for some time, we see if things have changed for the better

NIR Renewal and 80 class finale - new trains arrive from Spain by sea and road while vintage 80 class stock runs ďtidal flowĒ trains as track renewal gets underway

Network Notes - we take a look at rolling stock around the system, including finding the 29000, 2700, and 80 class units at work, and a look at the RPSI Mark 2 coaches being hauled by the elusive 8113, NIRís best kept secret.

Gormanston - this ex-GNR station has classic features and a modern passenger service provided by a variety of rolling stock (with Tara, Cement and Liner freight trains too).

The Fall and rise of Liner Trains - as IE pull out of liners we see the last days of the container trains in County Cork (minus containers!), and the Norfolk Liner returns heavy boxes to the I… system.

Rolling Stock Test - we compare Cravens, Mark 2s and Mark 3s in Mayo. Taking the passenger perspective, we buy our ticket and travel on all three types of rolling stock.

Western Stations Re-emerge - we travel along the Western Rail Corridor to see several stations which have reappeared, and some which have refused to vanish.

Hellís Kitchen Museum - We visit the only pub in the world with an engine in the bar.
