Superb Variety of Splendid Transport in Millstreet at Weekend

This past weekend in Millstreet saw such a magnificent variety of transport – vintage and modern.  We witnessed two very impressive Steam Trains, a 51 strong Tractor Run, a Motor-cycle rally, Muskerry Vintage Car Club and some push bikes also passing through.   Here we share a selection of the hundreds of images we recorded this weekend. We include here the passing through of the first Steam Train (No. 4 Locomotive) – about one hour late (!) – on Sat. 12th May 2018 and will show the 10 minute stop of the second train on Sunday (which arrived 15 mins early!) Lots more to follow later.  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.) [read more …] “Superb Variety of Splendid Transport in Millstreet at Weekend”
