The Railway Preservation Society of Ireland, is another voluntary organisation formed in 1964 to preserve in working order steam locomotives and other rolling stock that was built for and operated on the Irish railway system. The society is a non-profit charity managed and operated by voluntarily efforts.
At present there are 10 old Steam Locomotives, 8 Diesel Engines, 32 Carriages inc the State Coach – Nbr 351- built in 1903 for King Edward VII, guards vans and many other assorted wagons.
These items of rolling stock are overhauled, maintained and preserved at both Whitehead and at Inchicore, where they are restored and kept in a good serviceable condition by a group of dedicated volunteers.
