This book contains a fascinating collection of photographs and information on the lost railways of the north east of Ireland. Dundalk was dubbed 'The Railway Town’, and is the natural focus for the book. Here the Great Northern Railway of Ireland had its workshops next to the main line from Dublin to Belfast, and here the Irish North Western Railway snaked its way across the country to Londonderry. These and many other now long departed routes are included in this account of the region's railways before the closures of the 1950's and 60's.
The book is packed with around fifty black and white period photographs featuring locations such as: Dundalk, Navan, Castletown, Oldcastle, Cavan, Dunboyne, Batterstown, Drumree, Kilmessan Junction, Bective, Gibbstown, Wilkinstown, Nobber, Kilmainham Wood, Kingscourt, Athboy, Drogheda, Kells, Dromin Junction, Ardee, Greenore, Newbliss, Clones, Carrickmacross, Cootehill, Monaghan, Redhills, Ballyhaise, Loreto College, Belturbet, and Hill of Down
