Lost Railways of Dundalk and the North East
|Publisher||Stenlake Publishing, 54-58 Mill Square, Catrine, Ayrshire, KA5 6RD, Scotland.|
Continuing the series in the same format as Lost Railways of Northern Ireland, this book represents a photographic overview of the railways of Counties Louth, Meath, Westmeath, Monaghan, Cavan and Longford. As with the books covering Northern Ireland, the author has done well in his sourcing of material in that very few if any of the 'classics' appear. Brief historical details are given for each line with the date of closure for any stations no longer open.
The quality of reproduction, an issue with previous publications in this series, has improved. In addition, the number of photos of stations, rather than trains, is quite high. Both of these are to be welcomed. A minor point to note is the implication on both the title page and back cover that Navan is a county.
Days Hotel Belfast - located in a lovely area of Belfast where the Union Jack flies from every lamppost and the kerbstones are painted blue white and red.
