Filling her up
This is engine 207 (aka Boyne) at Conniberry, Co. Laois. According to our catalogue, this picture was taken while 207 was "getting coal supplies". However, the consensus from comments below is that it is water that's being taken on, so I'll change the description in our catalogue.....Thanks to a link provided by blackpoolbeach ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/blackpoolbeach/ ) , we now know this engine was blue ( http://www.stephensonloco.org.uk/irish_cov.jpg ) !..Date: Monday, 24 April 1961..NLI Ref.: ODEA 25/44 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000305483 )
Images from our photo collections that show those magnificent men (and women) in their flying, choo choo-ing, and driving machines... Oh, and we've cheated, we're adding boats and ships, jaunting cars and carriages, trams too and bicycles - we're completely shameless. So, basically any form of transport - air, sea, land - with the exception of two human feet...
