Notes :
(1) Route confirmation required. Photographed hauled by 0-6-0 no. 151 at Amiens Street, Enfield, Leixlip and Streamstown. The tour brochure commented '...the loco which today hauls our special train will in a few days more be "stored"; this is its last run before being pensioned off. It is therefore most fitting, even if much of our journey is over M.G.N.R. metals, that a G.S.&W.R 101 (J15) class shoudl play a leading role'.
