Irish Rail’s IWT Liner on a Saturday

I was traveling with Denis McCabe.

‘So where do we go?’

‘Try Cherryville first,’ I offered.

It was a bit brushed in and completely backlit. But we knew that.

‘How about Monasterevin? If we go to the bridge over the Barrow the sun will be side on.’

And so it was. We caught a the parade of Saturday morning passenger trains (I posted one of these yesterday). But then it clouded over.

‘Not much use here when there’s a white sky.’

So we moved up to the station.

We didn’t wait there long before the headlight of an 071 appeared.

In short order we caught the IWT Liner passing on its way to Ballina, County Mayo.

After  exposing a few colour slides,  I made a burst of digital images using my FujiFilm XT1.

Owing to the high contrast scene, I opted to make some exposure and contrast adjustments in post processing. I did this within the parameters of the histogram and so retained all the detail captured in my RAW file.

  1. The cab on each end arrangement seems to be popular in the UK. I is very seldom done in our country. I notice that the containers are single stacked, I guess owing to smaller clearances over there.
