Ireland's Trains

August 5, 2019

Rear Driving Unit of Intercity set waiting departure at Cork Kent Station.  New development underway in background.  Below :  rear unit of Cobh local service set from Cork and illuminated route map in our coach - showing station stops from Cork to Dublin- a two hour journey.   Very comfortable seating with plenty of leg room unlike UK cramped rolling stock.













Below :  Standard DART electric set at Howth terminal station.  An uninspiring colour scheme for the system.

 Approaching Connolley Station with a glimpse of a diesel freight engine in the yards.

 And from the other side of the DART coach a remarkable surviving piece of steam railway insfrastructure visible from Connolly Station platform  :  Water Tank and turntable.
