Front Cover - Cabra

Viewed from the Fassaugh Avenue road bridge, J4 Class locomotive No. 260 approaches Cabra with a Down goods train from North Wall on Thursday 26 September 1957. The first wagon in the train is a typical Midland design, with an open canvas cover. Other wagons in the formation include a bitumen tank and a gas-tank wagon. No. 260 entered service with the GS&WR in 1914 and was scrapped in 1962 following withdrawal from service. The former GS&WR Link line between Glasnevin and Islandbridge has been the subject of much Permanent Way Department attention in anticipation of inauguration of a Kildare to Grand Canal Dock commuter service in 2016.
