One Year on Irish Railways; Looking back ten years by Brian Solomon

On 10 March 2016, I will present an illustrated talk on Irish railways as they were ten years ago—the year 2006—to the Irish Railway Record Society in Dublin.

This will feature some of my best photography from 2006 and include images on the Waterford-Limerick line, Galway Line and Mayo routes, plus Railway Preservation Society Ireland steam trips and many other subjects.

There’ll be plenty of photos of General Motors diesels at work hauling freight and passenger trains.

Th talk will begin at 7:30 pm at the IRRS Dublin premises near Heuston Station.

    1. Not in the immediate future. However, I’ll post a few of the photos as a promotion. I plan to give a traditional slide show to the IRRS, and only a very small portion of the slides have been scanned (thus far).
