Ireland – 5ft 3in Gauge

I thought I would put some of my time during the Covi-19 pandemic lockdowns extending the web site to include preserved Irish steam locomotives. I decided I would limit this to what I regard as standard gauge locomotives but this translates to 5ft 3in rather than the far more common 4ft 8½in

The standard gauge preserved steam engines are listed below under the original railway company that they were built for. I do recognise that Guinness is not a railway company.
