  1. The July gallery has been updated with images from Monday 19th & Tuesday 20th July 2021: The Iarnrod Eireann MPV No. 790 operated over the Nenagh Branch on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th July to weedspray the branch. Click https://bit.ly/3BpFDDf to view.
  2. Nice shots of Drogheda JB. Afternoon folks, Last weekend I was in Maam Cross at the Connemara Railway project to volunteer for the day. A lot of work was completed in advance of some of the site being used for overspill car parking for the adjacent mart on the Sunday. While I didn't get a chance to take any photos on the Saturday (a first?!), I managed to grab some photos and a video on the Sunday morning. Click https://bit.ly/3rf8zsW to view.
  3. Thursday 15th July 2021: The Nenagh Branch had unusual traction this morning when 2606 + 2615 covered for a shortage of the regular 2800 Class on the 0630 Limerick - Ballybrophy & 1008 Ballybrophy - Limerick. Click https://bit.ly/3xJ0UWv to view all the images.

  5. Evening folks, Two updates to the website this evening. The first is some pictures of the Bord na Mona narrow gauge railway at Coolnamona outside Portlaoise. After a gap of several years, rail ops have once again started on the northern part of the system to Coolnamona Bog itself. Click https://bit.ly/3wpCmjG to view. The second update is in the July gallery showing Thursday evenings 1905 Ballybrophy - Limerick passing Nenagh. Click https://bit.ly/3k1iWz2 to view, Both galleries can be accessed from the home page at www.thewandererphotos.com [url=https://thewandererphotos.smugmug.com/IndustrialRailways/Railways-of-Bord-na-Mona/i-Jm3RRWg/A][img]https://photos.smugmug.com/IndustrialRailways/Railways-of-Bord-na-Mona/i-Jm3RRWg/0/97ac1f9c/S/DSC_5982-S.jpg[/img][/url] [url=https://thewandererphotos.smugmug.com/2021-Photos/July-2021/i-bsWGBpT/A][img]https://photos.smugmug.com/2021-Photos/July-2021/i-bsWGBpT/0/4af42791/S/DSC_5970-S.jpg[/img][/url]
  6. Afternoon folks, July is now upon us and the gallery for this month starts off with: Saturday 3rd July 2021: A few images from Ardrahan and Clare Abbey outside Ennis of Western Rail Corridor services while on a trip to the Clare coastline. Click https://bit.ly/3ylQMCJ or the image below to view.

  7. Would agree totally with you there, it's a different world at a different pace. I can only really recall passing one ESL boat which would you call a "party boat" in all my time hiring, often chatted to plenty of families / couples on ESL boats while moored up or passing through locks. But would agree SL is a far better spec especially on their premium boats.
  8. Indeed I have admired Silverline for a while but have been a loyal Emerald Star customer until this year, the prices were crazy. Silverline offerings were far more competitive and I got a 12 night deal at a cheaper price than a 7 night offering from Emerald Star! Originally supposed to go last May on the Silver Ocean but had to cancel that due to a family illness (and lockdown did drag on well into May), rebooked for end of August and as the Ocean wasn't available we are now on the Silver Shadow. However their diesel prices leave a lot be desired! Currently charging 1.65 per litre! ES in Portumna (and I assume Carrick) are only charging 1.40 which is very good.
  9. Saturday 26th June 2021: A ramble into Limerick this morning on the 1008 Ballybrophy - Limerick and returning to Nenagh via the recently introduced Bus Eireann 323 service which operates between Limerick and Nenagh via Ballina (Tipperary) and Portroe. All the images from the trip have now been posted in the June gallery at https://bit.ly/3dhvkXn [url=https://thewandererphotos.smugmug.com/2021-Photos/June-2021/i-6DG56j7/A][img]https://photos.smugmug.com/2021-Photos/June-2021/i-6DG56j7/0/b88b2300/S/DSC_5795-S.jpg[/img][/url] [url=https://thewandererphotos.smugmug.com/2021-Photos/June-2021/i-TKjkghL/A][img]https://photos.smugmug.com/2021-Photos/June-2021/i-TKjkghL/0/17b35d3c/S/DSC_5873-S.jpg[/img][/url]

  14. As I wasn't able to get out today for the final (in its current form) IWT Liner, I made an effort to get out yesterday for the penultimate IWT Liner from Dublin Port to Ballina and managed to picture it at Cloncoher, Co. Offaly between Geashill and Tullamore. Plans to get the last up working from Ballina to Dublin were scuppered by other issues cropping up sadly. Click https://bit.ly/3gpUq7g to view all the images.
