Dublin Northward in the 1950s - A Tour of Forgotten Stations
Middleton Press Easebourne Lane, Midhurst, West Sussex GU29 9AZ, UNITED KINGDOM
* Author - Gaius Sutton
* Author - Keith Smith
Dublin Northward in the 1950s is a personal recollection of travels in Ireland in 1957 by the author. Whilst the quality of the photos is variable, the fact that they have
not been published previously makes them interesting. As is the standard for most railway books, trains are the main item of interest. However, I would not write this
book off in terms of IH.
Photos of interest include:
* the now closed locomotive shed at Amiens Street Station which has clearly undergone alteration since, as the arched entrances over each individual track are gone
* An impressive photo of a train crossing the Belfast Line at the Square Crossing in Dundalk
* The overall layout of Clones station
* The twin road overbridges at Bundoran Junction
* Ballyshannon station - Great Northern Railway Ireland
* Overall layout of Bundoran
There are also other station features and bridges included in the photos. The piece de resistance is at the end of the book with a photo of the aerial ropeway at Arigna
bringing coal from the colliery adit to the railhead.
As a potential point of confusion, Photo 1.5 is Howth and not Howth Junction, an impression which the page heading may give.
