Default The Wanderer's Photos 2017 Gallery

Tuesday 3rd January 2017:
We start off the 2017 pictures with a visit to Ratheven outside Portlaoise to photograph 076 hauling failed 234 from Cork to Inchicore plus the usual MKIV and 22000 sets on passenger traffic.

Evening all,

I didn't think my first train trip of 2017 would be on a 22000 set on the Nenagh branch! But that is what happened today.
Due to a large number of passengers travelling to Limerick this morning on the 1005 Ballybrophy - Limerick service, mostly from Cloughjordan, which was organised by the Nenagh Rail Partnership for their annual outing to "Limerick on Ice" (Ice skating). Iarnrod Eireann decided to allocate the Limerick - Limerick Jct ICR set to the evening Ballybrophy service. I travelled north from Nenagh to Ballybrophy on it.

Morning all,

I'm in London this weekend for a railtour on the Saturday. The first batch of images from Friday have now been uploaded to http://smu.gs/2jhyDTj

The photos start at Dublin Airport and feature such exotic locations as Greenford and Stratford plus many more.

Evening all,

The next batch of photos from my weekend in London have now been uploaded to the website.

The main event of the day was the Branch Line Society's "The Vossloh Voyager" which traversed three much sought after depot / yard lines and other interesting track including East Putney in both directions. The 8-coach train was formed of the two Class 455 EMUs that have been recently used as the test bed for the new Vossloh Kiepe three phase AC traction motor project – 5732 and 5870. In recognition of the special train, all profits will be donated to SWT's nominated charity, Railway Benefit Fund (RBF). A grand total of £14,500 was raised.

All the photos from the railtour can be viewed at http://smu.gs/2iXMmvt

The other non-railtour images from Saturday include visits to:
- Clapham Jct.
- Waterloo.
- Stockwell.
- Brixton
- Kingly Court Underground Station. It's not what you think it is

These can be viewed at http://smu.gs/2jetJEH

Good evening folks,

Tuesday 17th January 2017:
There was considerable disruption to the Westport line after the 1140 Ballina - North Wall IWT Liner failed near Balla Station. It was rescued by 088 and hauled 073 and its train to North Wall. I photographed and videoed it passing Portarlington about 140 minutes late, along with a couple of ICR sets and 229 on the 1800 Heuston - Cork.

Evening folks,

Last weekend I visited Amsterdam, after a gap of 31 years.

Getting there proved rather interesting due to Storm Doris and other events.

See all the pictures at http://smu.gs/2lM9wWd
