THIS IMPRESSIVE NEW book covers the huge changes that have taken place on Ireland’s railways over the last 30 years, with particular emphasis on the Republic’s diverse fleet of General Motor’s-powered locomotives. With superb reproduction throughout and extensively detailed captions, this beautifully presented landscape format volume is the perfect reminder of the once extensive loco-hauled passenger and freight operations that used to cover the country.
