For this week’s Photo Challenge, let’s go back to the Model Railway Village in Clonakilty, West Cork. We had such an enjoyable day there in the summer, not only did we see and get a ride around the town on the old train, but we also got to see the models of the surrounding towns, showing life in the 1940s and 1950s in Ireland.
Above is a scene from an old market day, with produce, cattle, sheep and pigs on display to the highest bidder.
The model railway station shows commuters waiting for the train, as a goods train passes carrying new cars.
Looking down on the tiny houses!

While on a stroll along the old railway line by Blackrock Castle in Cork, we came across this mural on the wall of the old abandoned ticket office. Someone was being very optimistic that the trains would be along again ‘any minute now’ and the artist did a great job of making everything very life like.
