Vintage Irish Republic Railways - Steam in Eire - 1954
Inchicore works on 24/4/54 with Bulleid's turf burning locomotive taking centre stage. This rebuilt loco had been cobbled together in 1952 using ex-GS&WR K3 2-6-0 no. 356 as the base and never again saw main line service as it was simply a static test bed. Withdrawal and scrapping finally put her out of her misery in 1957.
