234 Roseberry 25 May 2018

Iarnród Éireann 201 Class 234 passes Roseberry (near Newbridge) on 25 May 2018 with the 09:35 Dublin North Wall to Ballina liner. Just visible on the trackside towards the rear of the train is a vintage stone milepost. The Dublin to Cork line retains these old posts, which are neatly painted black and white. This is in marked contrast to the UK, as Network Rail do not know what paint is. They do not maintain any old infrastructure, but merely replace it when it becomes illegible, rusts away, disintegrates or gets lost in the undergrowth!
