RTE has an article entitled “Enemy lines: the conflict on Irish Railways 1922-23” on their site, looking at aspects of Ireland’s railways 100 years ago.
A worthwhile read, I did notice an error in photograph selection, with RTE publishing a stock photo from SSPL/Getty Images, which they claim is of a Great Southern & Western Railway locomotive at Inchicore Works in Dublin.
I will be the first to admit that I have little to no interest in trains (including locomotives) and I know nothing about what type of locomotive this is or anything about it.
However, I did note that the initials on the side of the locomotive are:
“G&SWR” and not “GS&WR”.
A small difference, but significant in ruling this out as an Irish locomotive and also determining that the photo is not Inchicore.
There was a British railway company – the Glasgow & South Western Railway – the initials of which were “G&SWR”.
