First published in 1964 this new edition comprises the original text but the book has been redesigned and new photographs added and has 67 illustrations in total. In his preface the author recalls his childhood experiences of tiding the toastracks on this narrow gauge railway from Bushmills to Portrush and of how a talk he was to give in 1948 caused him to talk to the tram crews and managers and how this then led to further research. The book comprises eleven chapters covering the early days, operation, the First World War, the Second World War and after. Lack of maintenance meant that by 1949 the track was in very poor condition. This, combined with a growing overdraft, meant closure was inevitable and the assets were sold off piecemeal until 1952 when the company could be wound up. Eight appendices detailing locomotive, rolling stock, tickets and fares etc. tell more of the story.
