Description

A definitive and fascinating look at railways in Ireland throughout the 20th century, over three engrossing volumes.

Irish Railways – Vol 1: Irish Railway Miscellany

This new and revised edition of the pioneering volume in our Irish Railways series provides a splendid introduction to some of the delights which could be seen on both Ireland’s 5ft 3in standard gauge tracks and the country’s famed narrow gauge lines, from the 1950s through to the 1970s.

Irish Railways – Vol 2: The Swansong of Steam in Ulster

By the early 1960s steam traction had virtually disappeared from the railways of the Irish Republic; however it still flourished on the lines of the Ulster Transport Authority in Northern Ireland where the years up to 1964 can roughly be described as providing the Swansong of Steam in Ireland.

Irish Railways – Vol 3: The Irish Narrow Gauge 1939 – 1959

Over 550 miles of 3ft gauge lines was built in Ireland, the last closing in 1961. In colour films shot between 1939 and 1959 five 3ft gauge systems are featured; the Londonderry & Lough Swilly, the County Donegal, the Cavan & Leitrim Railway, the Tralee & Dingle Railway and the West Clare.
