Irish Narrow Gauge Album


Product Information

ISBN:9781911038818, HARDBACK

Mysterious, quirky, obscure, obsolete, quaint, bizarre, fantastic, mad – all adjectives that could and have been applied to the myriad narrow gauge railways to be found in Ireland, both north and south. Indeed, most at one time or another have probably been applied to the Listowel & Ballybunion, an almost unique monorail system on the far west coast in County Kerry. A glance at a map of Ireland shows the areas that these lines generally served were rural, remote and sparsely populated. Thus whilst such lines could be cheaply built and maintained in comparison to standard gauge railways, it also meant that they quickly became an anachronism as the 20th century progressed and apart from the Guinness Brewery system, closed in 1965, all of them had gone by 1961, some in the 1950s but several much earlier than that.
