Ballast Plough

Ballast Plough

Five of the CIÉ/Irish Rail 24850-24854 series vans were introduced in 1978 to supersede elderly pre-grouping vans for the Civil Engineering Department. They usually ran in pairs, top-and-tailing ballast hopper trains across the Irish railway network until their withdrawal in 2013.

The IRM Ballast Ploughs come in sets of two, and feature lit Tail Lamps (directional) and interior lighting (works on DC and DCC Ready with an 8 pin socket)
