A photographic exhibition.

“Each a Glimpse and Gone Forever”* – Fermanagh’s Railway Story

A photographic exhibition featuring Fermanagh railway scenes captured by John J. Smith (1925-2007). Originally from Eastbourne, John visited Ireland on a number of occasions during the heyday of steam. He portrays the story of Fermanagh’s railways through the camera lens; capturing locomotives, signal boxes and stations!

Headhunters Railway Museum have sourced a range of unique railway artefacts to complement the work of J.J.Smith.
