Easter Monday, photographer Jay Monaghan and I were in position at Memorial Road in Dublin to catch the RPSI carriage transfer on its way from Connolly Station to Inchicore.
These were the same carriages featured in yesterday’s post, ‘Steam Crosses Dublin’s Loop Line’.
Getting from Dubin’s city centre to Memorial Road, required a well-timed sprint to catch the 25B bus.
Although we were hoping for Irish Rail 073 in heritage paint, 201-class locomotive 232 in silver, green and yellow added colour to RPSI’s heritage train.
So, was this Ireland’s most colourful train on Easter Monday 2018?

Sometimes the railway photo isn’t about the train.
I made this pair of photos at Bray Head, County Wicklow, Ireland on Easter Monday 2017.
Railway Preservation Society engine No 4 was working trips from Dublin to Graystones, so I made the trek out along the head to capture these timeless views.
Although I made a few digital images, I prefer these black & white photos.
These were exposed on Ilford HP5 using a Leica IIIA and processed in Perceptol (1:1 for 14 minutes at 69 degrees F). No toning. Although, I think a dip in selenium would improve the contrast a bit.
