1989 • The Slow train

•• Published on: May 1, 2015

As long as I can remember, one particular feature of Wexford is the ‘slow train from’ Dublin/ Rosslare that painstakingly travel along the Quay, a few times every day.

Below are two sets of signage that flank the slow route (sometimes the driver extends it). I love that the train depicted in the signage is a steam train style icon. Naturally it’s more recognisable, at glance, as a train than the round edged, wheeled, streamlined rectangle people commute in today.

When I found wiggyattheweekend’s film shot while traveling along the Quay in the drivers cab of the train on the 21st of August 1989 I had to share. Enjoy the trip.
