Update to Gazetteer

I have gotten around to checking and doing a minor update to the gazetteer – at the moment, railway stations only, but I plan on expanding this to other IH features.

As this latter will take time, it is important to have the current gazetteer working correctly. In addition, I have made some minor updates to the maps (changed the Derry map to reflect the re-opening of Waterside station in 2019, added Pelletstown in Dublin and Bilberry on the Waterford and Suir Valley Railway).

I have also gone through my personal photo collection and added a photo for each station where I have one in my possession. Recent photo additions include stations on the Macmine Junction to Bagenalstown line with those on the Tullow branch and Kilkenny to Portlaoise to be added this week.

There are still 680 sites with no photo out of 1,227. Of these, 312 are in Northern Ireland (issues with driving a Republic of Ireland car down country lanes and taking photos of random buildings). I hope to reduce the number of these over time.
