Welcome to the 25th Year of Kavanagh Transit Photos!

Welcome to Ktransit.com, home of transportation photos from around the world. We started in 1999 on Trainweb. Then in 2001 ktransit.com came into being. From just a few transit photos to now over 17,000 transit and railroad-related photos from around the world, we have come a long way!

All photos on this website are owned and copyrighted by Mark Kavanagh. Mark has been around the world and his main passion is urban transit and railways. Commercial aircraft, cruise ships are also featured. To round this site, learn more about the Kavanagh family, both Mark’s family, and about the history of the Irish surname. There are other features of this website as well including the World Trade Center in NY. Please enjoy!

 Transit Photos

This is the heart of ktransit.com. This section features over 16,500 urban transit photos from 4 continents in 118 cities. Not to be missed!

 Railroad photos

Non-urban rail is also featured here. This includes Amtrak, US freight, Europe mainline, Japan Shinkansen, trains stations from around the world, and more. Over 740 photos are here!

 Transport Museums

This section features Railroad and transit museum, along with excursion railways from around the world. Over 900 photos are featured.

 Farecards & Tokens

This section deals with fare media. This includes magnetic strip farecards, the more modern IC chip farecards, traditional tickets, and old fashion tokens. 150 images.


There is something about commercial aircraft. Just like the railroads, they move people. Although flying may not be what it used to be, there is still something about flying. Come see the world’s airlines here with over 300 photos.

 Cruise Ships/Ferries

Going on a cruise is many people’s idea of a great relaxing vacation. Ferries on the other hand typically serve commuters going to work. They both move people. Currently only 17 photos.

 Travel Blog

This portion of the site is not updated often enough. Learn about Mark’s travels over the years. Facebook may be a better method by looking through his Facebook photo albums.

Kavanagh Family

Learn about Mark’s family, as well as a history lesson about the very Irish name of Kavanagh. All Kavanaghs, no matter how they spell it, can all trace their lineage to one person in the 1100s.

 World Trade Center

Mark grew up in the NY area and went to the old WTC many times before 9/11, the last time was about 12 days before the fateful day. This section of the website is dedicated to the lives lost that day, and the re-birth of the WTC site.

My YouTube video this week: Four Subway Systems in one Day. On May 2nd due to Amtrak issues, I was able to ride 4 subway systems in one day (WMATA/SEPTA/PATH/NY-MTA). If I thought about it at the time, I could have captured 5 systems (PATCO). youtu.be/1z5Xl7ae_cc ... See MoreSee Less
