Notes :
(1) Extracted from Irish Railfans News, November 1970; The Irish Railway Record Society ran a fascinating outing over this new line on 29 August. The party travelled in railcar 2509 from Rosslare Harbour to Ballinacourty and back to Waterford, making connections from and to regular trains. Stops were made at varied points of interest, including the Barrow Viaduct and Waterford South. This passenger special was the first such train on the new line.
