I'm offering the following....

 

1. NIR route map, 2008. Unrealistic to post - can leave it in Lisburn if I'm north, or meet to hand it over to you in Dublin. No charge.

Now look at the next pic, of which this is but one of many examples in this manual. What health and safety Gestapo goon gets paid for wasting paper like this? Doubtless they will justify it in a board meeting in corporate-speak as what they're doing "going forward", or "leveraging"...... Rant over.... Up to a point.......seriously.......

Rant calmed down now, as this 1933 publication is more sensible. I'm waiting for my 2018 working timetable, which will contain a hefty supplement on how people with nut allergies should approach the complicated issue of being properly certified to turn its pages on their own. While wearing steel capped boots and day glo underwear, of course.

 

Anyway, the following is a fascinating book in good condition. Things like this go for €25-50 depending on the weather; I'll take €10. Again, given its weight it would be expensive to post.

 

Here beginneth the first lesson:

The are the same when standing on your head. As true as I sit here, check it out yourself.

You'll notice how well ahead the LMS were in 1933. They were already publishing the single most comprehensive timetable that ever operated between Limerick and Waterford between 1950 and the present.

Nelson, it's yours. I thought of you, actually, when I posted this.

 

The NIR book has also been claimed, by the way.

 

Nelson - email me separately as I've other LMS stuff you might be interested in, and possibly a few LNER luggage labels. I'll need to make arrangements on how to get the book to you.

I’ll have a look, Odhran - I’m not sure. If I find it I’ll ping you privately. I suspect it’s gone, though.

Jonathan, just look back one post LOL 🙄
