Eight Years Ago on the Bog!

On March 8, 2014, photographer Dennis McCabe and I followed this Bord na Mona empty train compass west from the Edenderry Power Station to this rural level crossing near the village of Daingean, Co. Offaly.

The train was one of two heading out on the bog to a comparatively remote loading site to collect peat for delivery to the power station.

We had scoped out this location on an earlier trip, and at the time I was delighted to catch a train movement at this obscure location on the Irish Bord na Mona narrow gauge network.

Below are two variations of the same photo.

One was right out of my Lumix LX3, the other involves cropping the foreground and sky.

Uncropped Lumix LX3 photo.
This is my preferred cropping of the image.
