Got to thinking that once this forum gets going properly that people will naturally want to post pics of trips they've taken,whether they be Heritage or otherwise. In Aviation and Aircraft there's a 'Aviation & Aircraft Photo Gallery' thread that's stickied which is a repository for pictures,saves loads of individual threads which invariably slide down the pages and become hard to find.

Might be a good idea for Train & Rail systems. It's up to Chris & Victor obviously but just thought i'd throw it out there.

And a rare one for you lot! The interior of the presidential coach - Mk2d 5408.

Last years Diesel Do' Railtour. Organised by the RPSI,it was the debut outing of the recently preserved 141 class Loco's which were repainted into their original liveries and numbered B141 & B142. Tour ran from Connolly to Longford on a chilly February day.

Took this last November on the first day of the snow. It must have been doing a test run of the line.

Last year i decided to take a spin out to Moate station on the Mullingar-Athlone line. Having a peculiar fascination for disused stations and lines i'd been meaning to photograph this station for a long time. There's something both eerie and enthralling about standing on a platform of a station that hasn't seen a train depart in many years.

Does anybody know any schedules for the weed spraying train or even just general cargo trains on the Dublin to Waterford line? I know of 2 cargo trains but they're either too early or too late for me to get a picture of them.

Great pics! The IRN website (http://www.irishrailwaynews.com/) has a lot of info on it, and times of freight trains on the various 'loco watch' threads, although methinks we will catch up fast.

Just had these close to hand, anyone guess the location of the photo below?
It's not the WRC.


And the Enterprise near Clontarf.
