Fascinating and definitive history of the West Clare Railway from the first Parliamentary proposals in 1845 through its opening in 1892 and down through the years until its controversial closure in 1961. Whether it's a description of the howling winds blowing no fewer than five trains off the tracks, the lawsuit sparked when the poet Percy French ridiculed the service in a poem or the holdups and robberies during "the Troubles," the book is full of the kind of details that bring day to day life on the rails alive. Illustrated throughout with vintage black and white photos. With rosters, maps, timetables, diagrams, and scale drawings. 224 pages.
