Yesterday, the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland operated its The West Awake rail-tour in conjunction with Irish Rail.
A special feature of the tour was the unusual multiple-unit operation using a pair of General Motors-built 071 diesels that hauled RPSI’s Cravens to County Mayo.
At Claremorris the pair of 071s were replaced with locomotive number 071 (class leader) in retro orange for further excursions to Ballina and Westport.

During the trip I made numerous digital photos using my Lumix LX7.
Below are a dozen of my finest Lumix LX7 views. I’ll post more photos soon! The best are yet to come!
Special thanks to everyone at RPSI and Irish Rail for an excellent excursion to the west of Ireland!
