Description

DUBLIN CONNOLLY - ISLANDBRIDGE JUNCTION - CORK - COBH - CORK AVOIDING LINE - LIMERICK - ENNIS - ATHENRY - ATHLONE - PORTARLINGTON - DUBLIN CONNOLLY

We are delighted to announce our next diesel day tour, organised to raise funds for restoring our vintage fleet of diesel locomotives.

The requested motive power is 071 Class General Motors diesel locomotives throughout with the exception of one way between Cork / Cobh where the 201 standby locomotive will likely be used. We have requested a change of 071 at Limerick.

The tour will begin from Dublin Connolly and head towards the Cork mainline, passinng Portarlington , Portlaoise, Limerick Junction, Mallow and into the Rebel City of Cork. At Cork we expect a 201 class loco to haul the tour to Cobh. On the return from Cobh will will use the avoiding line at Kent station and "go around the back" before climbing out of the City. We will then retrace our steps back up the Cork mainline as far as Limerick Junction where we turn left and head into Colbert Station Limerick. A brief stop to water the carriages and swap locos, we will then head north along the Western Rail Corridor to Ennis, Gort and finishing up in Athenry. Then it is back to Dublin via Athlone and Portarlington.

This will be a FULL day out (timings to be confirmed). We are not guaranteeing any connections on the same day into or out of the tour for ferries, flights or bus services out of Dublin.

All funds raised by this trip will be going directly to the restoration of GM 121 class 134, currently under overhaul in Inchicore Works. We are hoping to see her and the 141 class hauling our future RPSI diesel tours.

Please note that the outline times shown are subject to change until paths are finalised with Irish Rail.
