The Wanderer's Photographs


The Wanderer's Photos is a contemporary photographic website which features the latest events on the Irish Rail & LUAS networks with occasional forays to Northern Ireland, the U.K. and beyond.

The website was created 11 years ago in August 2006, hosted by Fotopic. This hosting company suddenly closed in March 2011 and a new host had to be found. After considering Flickr & Zenfolio, I found Smugmug met my requirements and the website was rebuilt over a six month period with 10,000 photographs uploaded to this new website which had been previously hosted on fotopic.

Over the last ten years, The Wanderer's Photographs has developed an extensive collection of over 40,000 photographs from 2005 to the present day chronicling the demise of widespread locomotive hauled Intercity services & the introduction of the trains that replaced them, the "Intercity Railcars", railway & tramway openings to railway closures.  

In recent years the website has expanded to include a merchandise section and has social media accounts on Facebook & Twitter. Please do check them out.
