Time does fly, but it's actually 2 and a half years, doesn't seem that long, but it is.

I saw 082 on a westbound container train on Tuesday. It passed the Curragh at 1640, which I think is an unusual time for the IWT.

Could be a case of the afternoon liners resuming, inbound yesterday evening at PPT at 17.55.

082 still sounds the same too, judging by the videos I've seen online.

Well, after a long wait and a query in this thread about when I could see one go thru Maynooth, I finally experienced an 071 again for the first time in a long time, quite by accident at lunch time!

Drove down to Ballybough to get a car battery fitted and standing outside the place I heard a beautiful rhythmic rumble! Looked up and over the bridge on Summerhill Parade passes an 071 with a container train!

Painted up in the orange revival, lovely and clean, not sure which machine.

What a sight and sound!!

If it was just black and orange is was 071, if it also had the white "tippex" lines it was 073.

that one annoys me as it's completely the wrong shade of orange to be imitating the original supertrain.
