Ok - so the following are sale agreed:

* Bord na Mona

* CIE and NI railway system

* Johnson's Railway atlas.


Only Butt's Directory remains at the moment. It's expensive, but as noted in the initial post, this is the cheapest price that is available online; I would be interested to see if anybody could identify a good copy anywhere else at even near to this price.
