Indeed it is ... and how frustrating that it's the one I left the name on!

No idea of the location but “Mind the gap” springs out to me for number 3.  Grin

Both correct

Indeed ... and the answer is not "Donegal" either.  Great idea to name a carriage after a place, even one the railway doesn't even go to any longer.  This is the luxury rail land cruise train that ran in Ireland ... stopped at the pandemic and is now being transferred elsewhere in Europe.  Bearing in mind the gauge, that probably means Spain or Finland.

As soon as quiz questions move outside Great Britain, the number of answers plummets.  I guess no great surprise as 95% of about pages are loaded from within the UK (United Kingdom).   Still hope some of you found the St Patrick's day pictures interesting even if only three were identified ... full solution is

1 - Limerick Junction - AMLAG
2 - Athenry
3 - Portarlington
4 - Rosslare Europort
5 - Ballybrophy
6 - Dromod
7 - Drumcondra
8 - Tralee
9 - Killarney - TonyN
10 - Dublin Heuston - TonyN
