    Evening folks,

    We start off the 2018 round of photos with a visit to Cork, Cobh and Midleton. The main reason for my trip was to see the new station entrance at Cork.

    Unfortunately the weather wasn't that kind with Storm Eleanor rolling in across the country.

    Evening folks,

    It seems I jinxed 216 last night after my spin to Cork behind it yesterday. It was hauled back from Cork to Inchicore this morning hauled by 219. I was lucky enough to catch it passing Clonkeen, Portlaoise just before 1300.

    After working the 0530 Galway - Heuston on Monday the 15th January, the hybrid 6ICR set 22002 (22001) was sent to Laois Traincare Depot on the as required 0905 empty path, for the set to be reformed to 3ICR sets in their original formations of 22301 + 22401 + 22201 and 22302 + 22402 + 22202.

    22001 is required back in its original formation for testing of the CAWS/ATP hybrid signalling system between Limerick Jct. and Charleville in the coming weeks. Once the testing is complete the set will be once again reformed back to the hybrid 6 car 22002 (22001) set.

    Evening all,

    A bit of a PWD update this evening with pictures of 088 arriving at Portlaoise with a rail train from North Wall. Later on I stumbled upon it shunting the CWR train at Portlaoise PWD Yard. Earlier today 073 brought the Sperry Train from Mallow to Portlaoise.

    In other photos, Monday starts off with 222 hauling failed MKIV set 4001 past Portlaoise and a few MKIV sets passing Rosskelton today.

    Afternoon all,

    While the country battens down for Storm Emma, I caught up on my backlog of pictures from the past week.

    Friday 23rd February 2018:
    Pictures from Portlaoise, Limerick Jct. and Limerick.

    Tuesday 27th February 2018:
    On Tuesday evening I spent about two hours in Dublin City Centre observing and photographing LUAS Cross City trams in the City Centre. The College Green area was moving very well with no traffic delays to road vehicles or trams.

    Wednesday 28th February 2018:
    One picture of 22032 arriving into a snowy Portlaoise on the 0740 Limerick - Heuston.

    Evening folks,

    Photos from yesterdays RPSI Diesel Railtour "The Branchline Wanderer" from Connolly to Waterford and Limerick have now been uploaded to the website at http://goo.gl/2VugC9 . Locos 071, 074 and 086 were used on the tour with changes taking place at Waterford and Limerick.

    Despite some late running in the afternoon, the tour was another great success with 304 passengers travelling on the tour during the day. Money raised from these railtours goes towards funding the restoration of the RPSI's 121 Class loco No. 134 which is currently at Inchicore undergoing overhaul.

    Evening folks,
    Some pictures from the past month.

    Tuesday 1st May 2018:
    A day trip to the Dublin area with pictures from:
    - Thurles.
    - Inchicore (CME Golden Spanner awards).
    - Heuston
    - Connolly
    - Dundalk - 079 stabled with the weedspray train.
    - Clontarf Road.

    Wednesday 2nd May 2018:
    I got a tip off that 2607 + 2608 were to work the morning Ballybrophy service due to a shortage of 2800's.

    Saturday 5th May 2018:
    I took a spin from Nenagh into Limerick on Saturday morning. Loadings were good with 38 people on the train into Limerick.

    Sunday 6th May 2018:
    After travelling on the Branch Line Society Railtour (see railtour section), some images were taken in Heuston of the evening departures.

    Tuesday 8th May 2018:
    There were a number of set failures over the Bank Holiday weekend which resulted in several empty moves today to work the failed sets back to their home depot. For the 22000's these were a 1400 Waterford - Heuston, 1115 Heuston - Laois Depot & 1135 Cork - Laois Depot.

    One of the more unusual movements concerned MKIV Set 4001 which failed in Cork on Saturday night. 073 was sent from Inchicore to haul it back from Cork. The 1535 Cork - Inchicore Empty with set 4001 and 219 dead on the rear passes Pole Bridge south of Portlaoise.

    Thursday 10th May 2018:
    I took a detour to Quakers Road Level Crossing between Roscrea and Ballybrophy to photo 2802 + 2801 on the 1655 Limerick - Ballybrophy.

    Click https://thewandererphotos.smugmug.com/2018-Photos/May-2018/i-DJmGBfg to view.

    Also during the month the Branch Line Society operated a railtour around the Dublin area - pictures from this are now online at https://thewandererphotos.smugmug.c...ety-The-Faireview-Failte-Sunday-6th-May-2018/
