    Photos from my trip on Wednesday to the East Somerset Railway, followed by a visit to Yeovil Pen Mill station for a Class 166 on a Gloucester service, then a return journey from Dorchester to Weymouth, going out from Dorchester South and back to West. Includes prototype Class 150 no. 150002 plus a few photos of the Weymouth Tramway.

    I visited Northern Ireland on Thursday, taking in Larne, Whitehead (for the RPSI Museum), Carrickfergus and Belfast. Photos from the trip are here: https://mkttransportphoto.smugmug.com/2018/August-2018/Overseas-August-2018/i-8wFHv2F

    Some video of the Enterprise departing Belfast Central (or 'Lanyon Place' to give it its new name) on this trip is here:



    I also got my first photo of a train in the new West Midlands Railway livery at Birmingham International on the way home:

    I travelled to Ireland last week, visiting Tralee, Killarney, Mallow, Cork, Midleton and Cobh. A full photo gallery from the trip is here: https://mkttransportphoto.smugmug.com/2019/February-2019/Overseas-February-2019

    During this trip I also got a short video clip of a Mark IV+221 class set leaving Cork for Heuston:



    And lastly, some photos from Cambridge and Stansted on the outbound leg of this trip: https://mkttransportphoto.smugmug.com/2019/February-2019/UK-Rail-February-2019/i-9G5hWgV

    Enjoy!
