086, Portlaoise, 07-04-2018
The special had been held at Thurles to run as scheduled behind the up Cork, so instead of appearing at 2004 when there was still light, it arrived at 2045 when the situation was somewhat different! On the plus side, the train made a brief stop - although had I known this was to happen, I would have planned differently with a tripod at the up end of the platform!
As a result , ISO12800 was required which is the limit of my camera, with an inevitable amount of noise which post processing has struggled to remove. A record shot therefore of the tour as it arrives at Portlaoise.
