The Wanderer's Photographs

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.

2700 Class

The 2700 and 2750 Classes are two related types of diesel multiple unit operated by Iarnród Éireann. The 2700 Class units are 2-car sets; 25 cars were built by GEC Alsthom in 1997 and 1998, and began entering service in December 1998.
