Some of the old signal switchgear removed from the tracks at the abandoned train station in Mogeely, east Cork. It’s somewhere I’ve been meaning to stop for a while so the added incentive of roadworks on the main Cork – Waterford road and the handy diversion sealed the deal. It’s an odd spot. Not exactly what you’d think of when you imagine the term ‘abandoned’. After all, the station is in the middle of the town.

Now, less of this distraction. I’ve got about half a dozen chapters of various Cisco routing twaddle to look at before exams tonight. Oh how I love theory. Mmmm Hmm!
