A reprint with minor updates of a work originally published in 1962, the book details the histories of the individual companies that gradually merged to form the GNR(I) and also covers standard matters such as locomotives and rolling stock, civil engineering aspects, accidents and train services.
The number of photographs contained in the publication is a significant increase on the original 1962 publication and its subsequent 1986 reprint. The publishers are to be congratulated on including a significant number of photos of built heritage interest, including Clones roundhouse and long disappeared Queen's Bridge station in Belfast.
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.
