Percy at the head of a goods train in December, running past the skeletal remains of last years' foliage.
Jane with a rake of LGB skips, now beginning to look nicely weathered thanks to the liberal application of two-part rusting solution.  The first application is fine iron particles suspended in a clear acrylic base, the second is an oxydizing accelerant.  It really does the trick.
Aberfoyle takes the morning mixed train past the vinca; the train crew notes happily that the garden is beginning to come back to life.
Lady Edith takes a goods train into the triangle at Moyasta.
Aberfoyle with a down goods train runs past the vinca and through the 1:1 path crossing.
It's May, the thyme has begun to fill in again, and Slieve Callan approaches Lahinch with the afternoon train.
The quick-moving photographer was able to get down the line in time to capture this image of Slieve Callan drifting down the grade towards Rineen.

Aberfoyle drifts through the curve through the crossing with a short mixed train.

Approaching the triangle at Moyasta...

...and after a stop to let off passengers for Kilrush, rolling through the junction and on to Kilkee.
