Irish Steam Locomotives
This gallery is entirely devoted to the Irish steam locomotives that have survived into preservation. Steam locos in Ireland were mainly constructed during the late 19th & early 20th centuries, with some early examples surviving until the end of steam on CIE in 1965, and Northern Ireland in 1970. Later advanced steam locomotives were built between 1930s right until the 1940s, these mainly been constructed by the Great Northern and LMS Northern Counties Committee railway companies. The principal operators of main line steam trains in Ireland are the RPSI, and those run at the preserved Downpatrick & Co.Down Railway.
