Ireland's Railways Past & Present Dublin
Silver Link Publishing The Trundle, Ringstead Road, Great Addington, Kettering, Northants, NN14 4BW, UNITED
* Author - Michael H C Baker
This book is largely a reprint in a reduced format of a hardback book published in 1997. Given the enormous change in Ireland's railway infrastructure in the last 10
years, a complete revision would have been called for. Factual errors in the original version not corrected in this revised edition are on Page 84, where the station
shown is Coolmine and not Castleknock and on Page 85, the modern day photo is taken at Lucan North station.
In addition, on Page 86, the author refers to Maynooth Cathederal (no such thing, the church in the picture is the Gunn Chapel in Maynooth University) and no
reference is made to the fact that the Maynooth line has been redoubled.
All things considered, the author/publisher missed an opportunity to completely revise this work, which would have been a better publication.
