Evening all,

Photos from this week, all from the Portlaoise area featuring the Belmond Grand Hibernian returning to Inchicore on a trial from Limerick and two days later on the final charter of the season from Limerick Jct. to Mallow and Heuston. The train stopped in Portlaoise for a short period of time with entertainment and refreshments provided in the car park. Plus the usual diet of MKIV's and 22000's passing through.

Sunday 18th November 2018:
On Sunday afternoon I headed out to Yellow Quarry near Killarney to photograph the 1450 Cork - Tralee which is booked for a 4 car set of 2600's instead of the more normal diet of 22000's on the Tralee line. Later in the evening photos come from Killarney Station, Mallow and Limerick Jct. where we saw one of Iarnrod Eireann's newly passed out drivers heading for Dublin.

Back to the late 1940's early 50's Foynes Loop Speed Limit with official and un-official speed limit. Thanks as usual to the Armstrong Railway Photographic Trust.  No idea who the chap was, possibly an early selfie!

Evening all,

Two updates to the website this evening with the last of the November pictures and the start of the December collection. Another year is nearly gone.

Thursday 29th November 2018:
Pictures from Heuston Station and the footbridge at Inchicore.
Click https://goo.gl/suqzPo to view the November gallery.


Saturday 1st December 2018: 
A brief visit to Ballybrophy to photo the 1200 Heuston - Cork and 1125 Cork- Heuston passing the station. 

Sunday 2nd December 2018: 
While wandering around Co. Clare a slight detour found me conveniently passing Moyasta on the way home. Not much appears to have changed since my last visit in 2016, with no progress made on the long mooted transport museum. Later in the day I stumbled upon former Dublin Bus vehicle RH11 outside a pub at Liscasey, Co. Clare.

Click https://goo.gl/nkEADr to view the December gallery.

Of course both galleries can be accessed from the home page at www.thewandererphotos.com

The summary of the week so far includes:

Tuesday 4th December 2018: 
Pictures from Heuston on Tuesday evening while waiting to catch my train home.

Wednesday 5th December 2018: 
A ramble to Ashtown via tram and train to meet some friends for a catch up. The latter part of the evening has pictures from Heuston.

Thursday 6th December: 
A visit to Rosskelton and Clonkeen during lunchtime to photo the 1000 Mallow- Portarlington Spoil Train which was hauled by 076 with 077 dead in tow. 077 had failed on Tuesday outside Cork with the same train.
