Arnold, The Golden Years Of The Great Northern Railway (Part One).

Arnold, The Golden Years Of The Great Northern Railway (Part One).

Arnold, R.M. The Golden Years Of The Great Northern Railway (Part One). Belfast, Blackstaff Press, 1979. 15.5 x 22.5cm. (9), 158 pages, with B&W photographs. Original hardcover with dustjacket in protective Mylar. Excellent condition.

This book charts the ups and downs of Ireland’s best known railway during the years of its finest achievements – from one World War to the next. The first part of the saga of these famous 560 miles deals with the network of lines that served Belfast, Portadown, Derry and Enniskillen. It introduces railwaymen, eccentric, industrious or fanatical; it lists and describes 225 locomotives and 600 carriages; with the aid of gradient and station diagrams it recalls celebrated stretches of line, their crossings and stations; it re-enacts feats and defeats and regales with interesting anecdotes.
