Brian Solomon’s Illustrated Lecture to the Irish Railway Record Society in Dublin to be presented on February 12, 2015.

The talk is titled: Ireland in Colour, Bo-Bo’s, Rail Freight and Signal Cabins.

This view of old 177 leading the weedspraying train over the disused Midland Great Western route at Moate is one of many colourful images to be presented.

The program will be given at the IRRS premises at Heuston Station in Dublin (opposite the entrance to the car park) and will begin at 7:30pm.

This will feature a variety of original colour slides projected in the traditional manner (that is, using a good ol’ fashioned slide projector!)
