Riassunto: The decade covered by this book was one of the most interesting in Irish railway history. In 1955 as many as five distinct organizations were operating train services, three narrow gauge systems were still active and four differnt types of traction were still employed - steam, diesel, electric and horse power. The following decade saw a rapid changeover from steam to diesel, particularly in the Republic of Ireland where steam had all but been eclipsed on main lines by 1960. Yet despite the changes and the contraction of the system, there was much to stimulate those interested in railways, as venerable steam locos shared the tracks with the latest diesels which in turn could be seen hauling ancient coaching stock. For the first time, this book captures a flavour of those years in over 200 colour photographs. Tom Ferris has brought together a fine collection from throughout the country, complemented by an informative introduction and detailed captions. This unique and original publication is a must for all those with even a passing interest in Ireland's distinctive railway heritage.
