Often I have a pretty good idea what’s on the program. Yet, sometimes when traveling, I come across completely unexpected.
So for me this was a surprise: The Linmag Railgrinder at Banteer, County Cork.
So let’s back up: last week it was dull and drizzly. I was traveling by road with Ken Fox in rural north county Cork. As we approached Irish Rail’s Banteer Station, one of the railway’s smaller halts, I spotted this Linmag rail grinder in the sidings east of the station platforms, I said, ‘whoa! Stop the Car!’
Ken found it amusing, when I leapt out, cameras in hand, to photograph this interesting rail maintenance equipment.
Irish Rail doesn’t own its own modern rail grinder so it contracts Linmag to profile its rails.
I exposed these views using my FujiFilm XT1.
