Welcome to The Wanderer's Photos.
The Wanderer's Photos was started in August 2006 and was previously hosted on fotopic.
Following the demise of fotopic in March 2011 the collection was moved to Smugmug. The photographic collection was rebuilt over a 9 month period to December 2011.
Photographs on The Wanderer's photos are divided into several "categories".
- General Iarnrod Eireann and Translink Northern Ireland Railway photos are contained in the year folder e.g. "2010 Photos".
In addition to the year categories there are several other categories broken down as follows:
