Cobh Branch October 2014

Working with my Canon EOS7D, on October 7, 2014, I made these photos of a Cobh-bound Irish Rail 2600-series railcar pausing at Rushbrook, Co. Cork.

Irish Rail’s Ken Fox was giving me a detailed tour of the line.

I made my first visit to the Cobh Branch in 1999. The same 2600-series railcars worked it then, but in a bright orange, black and white livery.

Victorian Railway: Cobh Branch at Woodhill, Tivoli, Cork.

Irish Rail’s Cobh Branch retains a Victorian character running east from Kent Station through Woodhill, Tivoli in Cork City.

Cast iron foot bridges and terrace houses facing the line make for a classic setting.

On weekday mornings 2600 railcars pass every few minutes on their way to and from Midleton and Cobh.

I made these views using my FujiFilm XT1 during a visit three weeks ago.
