Steam and Strawberry Fair—County,Wexford, July 2001.


On July 7, 2001, I traveled with the late Norman McAdams to photograph an Railway Preservation Society of Ireland Strawberry Fairsteam special led by locomotive 171.

During the course of the day we caught this colourful excursion at a variety of locations on the Dublin & Southeastern route south of Dublin.

In the afternoon, typical Irish summer weather closed in on us, with heavy skies and haze.

I made this telephoto view of the northward trip at Killurin, County Wexford along the River Slaney. I opted to photograph the train at distance to show the full consist and the snaky track alignment.
