AN IRISH RAILWAY PICTORIAL - The Great Northern Railway
|Publisher||Midland Publishing, 4 Watling Drive, Hinckley, Leics, LE10 3EY, UNITED KINGDOM|
In the standard format for Midland Counties Publications' Irish Railway pictorial series, notable photos include the stations at Great Victoria Street (original), Queen's Bridge, Scarva, Banbridge, Edward Street in Newry, Dromin Junction, Oldcastle, Coalisland, Cookstown, Pomeroy, Sixmilecross, Omagh, Derry Goods, Armagh, Killylea, Monaghan, Clones, Newtownbutler, Lisnakea, Lisbellaw, Ennislillen and Bundoran Junction as well as the canal bridge crossing in Newry, Portadown Junction, the renewal of the Boyne Bridge in Belfast, Boyne Road Junction (Drogheda), the viaduct in Navan, the bailey bridge at Fairview (1954) and the Square Crossing in Dundalk.
A notable omission is the narrow gauge tunnel at Keady, built in anticipation of the Ulster and Connaught Light Railway. However, having said this, this publication is a significant improvement on earlier works in this series, from the perspective of coverage of built heritage features. May this trend continue if future lines are covered in subsequent publications.
