This video provides an extensive nostalgic look at the Irish Rail scene since 1995, during which time there have been major changes. This video captures the days of near universal locomotive haulage and semaphore signalling, in many parts of the Republic. Since then, locomotive haulage has largely given way to railcars on most intercity routes, and commuter services. Locomotives no longer run round their trains at termini.
Locomotive classes featured are 071, 121, 141, 181 and 201 along with various classes of Railcars and EMU's on the DART. The change of livery from orange to green and silver is documented.
Preserved steam operation is shown on the Tralee & Dingle, and Cavan & Leitrim heritage lines, now only a memory themselves. Also featured are the Bombardier buses operated by Dublin Bus and Bus Eireann.
