Written in English, French & German, this publication is one aimed at the tourist market, detailing railway heritage ventures and societies on the island of Ireland. The introduction could only be described as wishful thinking to anyone who is aware of Irish Rail's attitude to its built heritage, which in reality can only be described as that of the slash & burn variety. Notable omissions include Cumann Treanach Gaeltacht Lair at Fintown in Donegal, Peatlands Park near Dungannon, the Modern Railway Society of Ireland and the pictorial museum at Dundalk railway station, the latter a poor reflection on the authors given that this work is published by Irish Rail. From the industrial heritage perspective, this work adds little of value and at 7.95, your money would be better spent elsewhere. A better buy is Transport Preservation In Ireland 2005.
