085, Portlaoise, 22-05-2018
The 1210 Inchicore - Limerick wagon transfer runs once a week as required, usually on a Tuesday in the Belmond season. It transfers wagons on maintenance between the two sites, as well as seen here new and freshly turned wheels. Here we see 085, with the sort of train modellers love as a prototype - it fits on any layout! - passes south with the return working in the spring sunshine. A similar working operates weekly between Limerick and Waterford, to allow wagons off the Waterford - Ballina circuit to be moved to Limerick for maintenance.
