Welcome to the Wanderer's Photographs
The Wanderer's Photos on Smugmug is a contemporary photographic website which features the latest events on the Irish Railway networks with occasional forays to Northern Ireland, the U.K. and beyond.
The website was created in August 2006 on fotopic.net. Fotopic.net closed in March 2011 and a new hosting website had to be found. Smugmug.com met my requirements and the website was rebuilt over a six month period with 10,000 photographs uploaded to the new website.
Over the last eight years, The Wanderer's Photographs has developed an extensive collection of over 22,000 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.
