224/366 • G.S.R. 461

A steam train was in town today and I'm no train spotter but with 365 being what it is, I saw the chance of a photo. I will post a full shot of it tomorrow, but this number plate on the side fascinated me. The green and the red, along with the wear and tear from many years of service are just so wonderful together. GSR stands for Great Southern Railways and the company operated from 1922-1945 in what was then the Irish Free State (now the Republic of Ireland.). More train trivia and Irish history tomorrow...
