The distant roar of a class 071 GM diesel announced the approach of Irish Rail’s up Sligo passenger (train) at Enfield Cabin.
Working with a Rollei model T twin-lens reflex, I made this black & white photograph of Irish Rail 085 leading Mark 2 carriages in December 2003.
At the time, there was nothing remarkable about an 071 working the Dublin-Sligo passenger trains, yet this was soon to change.
I had made one my first photos of an Irish Rail 071 diesel at Enfield more than five years earlier.
