Lost Railways of County Dublin and the South 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 balanced photographic overview of the railways of County Dublin and the south east of Ireland. 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 and this is to be welcomed. Minor points to note are the references to Howth as an island (originally, yes but not in railway days) and the photo on the last page appears to be Woodenbridge looking north and not Avoca. Given the size of Dublin City and County, a publication on this area alone would probably be merited.
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.
