got a copy today of RAILWAYS OF IRELAND PAST AND PRESENT DUBLIN-and lads, its a fantasiic look back at the black and tan era. the only drawback is that all the pics are not in colour. but having said that, the pics are outstanding! it has all classes of locos, shulzers, shunters, 141's, railcars, darts and steamers. there is a great chapter on the north wall and another on inchicore.... bliss! fair play to hc baker. :tumbsup:
