An Irish Railway Pictorial - The Great Northern Railway
Midland Publishing Ltd 24 The Hollow, Earl Shilton, Leicester LE9 7NA, UNITED KINGDOM
* Author - Tom Ferris
In the standard format for Midland Counties Publications' Irish Railway pictorial series, notable photos include the stations at Great Victoria Street (original), Queen's
Bridge, Scarva, Banbridge, Edward Street in Newry, Dromin Junction, Oldcastle, Coalisland, Cookstown, Pomeroy, Sixmilecross, Omagh, Derry Goods, Armagh,
Killylea, Monaghan, Clones, Newtownbutler, Lisnakea, Lisbellaw, Ennislillen and Bundoran Junction as well as the canal bridge crossing in Newry, Portadown
Junction, the renewal of the Boyne Bridge in Belfast, Boyne Road Junction (Drogheda), the viaduct in Navan, the bailey bridge at Fairview (1954) and the Square
Crossing in Dundalk.
A notable omission is the narrow gauge tunnel at Keady, built in anticipation of the Ulster and Connaught Light Railway. However, having said this, this publication is a
significant improvement on earlier works in this series, from the perspective of coverage of built heritage features. May this trend continue if future lines are covered
in subsequent publications.
