The author’s first love was trains. With British Rail, he started as a porter, later becoming a signalman, but after being made redundant for the third time in three years, he headed off to Ireland for fresh adventures with his new wife and his Rolleiflex Mod T camera. This book is the result and includes images taken by the author between 1974 and 1982 and four ‘must-haves’ from 1956 by Peter Barlow. Locations featured include Kilonan Junction, Limerick Engine Shed, Newcastle West, Rathkeale Station, Ballingreane Junction, Patrickswell, Foynes Junction, Colbert Station Yard, Limerick Check Cabin, Lisnagary Station and Dromkeen Signal Box.
