Default Drivers' bags

I am a big fan of the bags that IE drivers are given as standard issue. Big square, large rivets, shoulder strap. Does anyone know anything about them or about how I might get my hands on one?

That might be a less than appropriate question.

The bag is actually a guards bag

There is a difference, Irish Rail staff use the guards bag in brown. The bags are standard issue and appear to come from the UK.

Not making any endorsement - this may or may not be Irish Rail's source, I don't think it is.

Ebay also has used bags on a regular basis, there used to be a surplus depot in London for this kind of stuff.

Is there any chance you could source a train horn to make one of these?

Thanks very much Mark. I'll follow these up. Love a nice bag I do.

I lost out on an eBay bid for one. Ah well.
