Steam train excursion from Dundalk

A great set of photos of former Great Northern Railway (Ireland) V Class 85 Merlin leaving Dundalk. It might not be in Britain but with it being built in Manchester by Beyer Peacock & Co I think we can get away with it.

Talk of the Town

Thanks to local photographer Darran Rafferty for sharing these superb pictures of a steam train coming into Dundalk today.

The Dundalk Railway Heritage Society, in conjunction with the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland, ran an excursion from Clarke Station to Connolloy Station in Dublin.
