The Wanderer's Photographs

2006 - 2016

Welcome

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 10 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 28,500 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.

Slideshow of the Week


Belmond Grand Hibernian

The Belmond Grand Hibernian is a new luxury touring train of Ireland launching the end of August 2016.

The company have converted 10 former Iarnrod Eireann MKIII carriages to tour the country with trips ranging from 2 nights to 6 nights on board.

See the Belmond Grand Hibernian website for further details.

MK3 Generator Van 7601 pictured in Brodie Engineering at Kilmarnock, Scotland painted in a dark blue livery for Belmond's Grand Hibernian train. This is the first vehicle to be painted and from this picture it can be seen that a number of bodyside alterations have taken place with one set of luggage doors and the Guards door plated over. The livery isn't complete and is awaiting the application of lining and decals etc. <br />
<br />
The overhaul of 216 is also coming along and it is expected into Inchicore Paint shop in the next "couple of weeks" Wed 03.06.15. <br />
