    Brown signpost on the main drag through Dromod for C&L station, station signpost for adjacent IR station (direct services from Dublin). For a decent, uninterrupted visit, send disinterested family members for a cruise on the Shannon while you take it all in!

    Heh heh, I'd love to visit (and the wife would happily tag along) but not likely any time soon. :(
    I was trying to identify the locos to update, or add to, my Locos Database http://www.heritage-railways.com/locosdb/locos.php but obviously need to be certain I am updating the correct records. If anyone could supply photos of individual locos that would be much appreciated.

    I don't know numbers, but suggest contacting Micheal Kennedy at Dromod who will be able to help. Use search in Facebook to find his Messenger details.

    Thank you for for the contact details (I hope Michael has given permission for his email address to be published . . . )

    Good point - I'll edit it out. But he can be contacted on Messenger and can be found using search in Facebook.

    Good point. I met Michael many moons ago and he's a top bloke. The collection at Dromod goes well beyond just rail, the photo above showing only part of what's there. The half mile trip (to the site of the first LC) I did in a 'Wickham', which was great fun. I hope to get back some day to repeat it behind Dromod or Nancy. :)

    The double decker bus is a bit sad.
