Lost Railways of County ‘Derry
|Publisher||Stenlake Publishing, 54-58 Mill Square, Catrine, Ayrshire, KA5 6RD, Scotland|
This book is one of four titles which represent a balanced photographic overview of the railways of Northern Ireland with an equal if not greater weighting given to images of stations/features as is given to trains. In this regard, they are to be welcomed. A lot of railway photographs tend to reappear in every publication, but the author has done well in his sourcing of material in that very few if any of the 'classics' appear. In addition, brief historical details are given for each line with the date of closure for any stations no longer open.
However, detractions from these works include the quality of reproduction, which is variable, leaving me to wonder if this is to do with the quality of the original material used or of the printing process and a tendency to refer to the Republic of Ireland as "Eire".
