Irish Rail 073 was repainted in 2017 into heritage orange paint.
When I arrived in Ireland 20 years ago, most locomotives were in some variation of this orange-livery. Today, 073 is a novelty.
The bright orange with white trimming makes for a great subject, even on cloudy days since its stands out well from the background.
I made these views last week at Dublin’s North Wall of the arriving IWT Liner.

Last week Irish Rail class 071 worked the IWT Liner.
Dressed in the 1970s-era heritage livery, this locomotive has been a popular topic with local photographers.
The bright orange locomotive glistens even on a dull day.
I exposed this view on Friday (1September 2017) from Conyngham Road in Dublin (at the entrance to the Phoenix Park Tunnel) using my FujiFilm XT1 with 27mm pancake lens.
