    That 184 plate is interesting, in that it's one of the ones specially cast for her to appear in a special livery for filming about 1959/60-ish. It is thus unique.

    Naturally, she had carried a painted number for some years before, and the original Inchicore plate would have disappeared some time in the late 49s / early 50s.

    I'm presuming the DSER one is off a wagon. No coach or loco had anything like that.

    As far as I am aware, full lists of DSER wagons haven't survived, so finding out exactly what it came off might be difficult.

    Never argue with an idiot. He will bring you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

    As does the word 'few' common uses can include 'going out for a few' or 'sure I've only had a few'

    'few' also is a common unit of measurement denoting an unquantifiable volume of ale or spirits.

    Maybe from a tram?

    No, I think you're in luck Dave. I'm pretty sure it's from a Hill of Howth tram

    EDIT: it took some time to find evidence to back that statement up....
