The Irish Traction Group currently owns 13 locomotives, and used to own a further three which were subsequently re-sold for industrial use as the cost of restoration was well beyond the means of the Group. Of our current fleet, four are fully operational and on long term loan to the Downpatrick & Co. Down Railway, a fifth is currently under restoration at the Downpatrick & Co. Down Railway, whilst a further two are under restoration at the ITG's operating base at Carrick-On-Suir, Co. Tipperary.


Two other locomotives are stored at Carrick-On-Suir awaiting restoration, and the remaining four are stored at the premises of the West Clare Railway, Moyasta, Co. Clare. Below is a list of our current locos with a link to further details for each.  You can also use the drop down menu to access this information.
