Trip tips: train spotting|
1. The Brief guide for rail enthusiasts, part of Peter Scott's excellent Insiders guide to hidden Dublin provides the train spotter with useful and comprehensive information.
2. I find Bray Station, especially between 8.30 and 11.00 hours on weekdays because of the variety of rolling stock present at those hours, quite a good place to make photos. After making photos in and around the station you may proceed to the Cliff walk in the direction of Greystones from which you can take breathtaking -especially when you carry heavy equipment- photos of a spectacular stretch of railway. The Cliff walk starts at the southern end of the Bray seaside esplanade. Allow for walking three quarters up to an hour (from the station) to reach a good point to take your photos and don't forget to bring your timetable as the train traffic between Bray and Greystones isn't very heavy.
