James Boyd turns his attention to this 3 ft gauge railway in Co. Cork. If you prefer a railway history concerned with a well-conceived, adequately-financed, well-managed and prosperous commercial undertaking; if you wish to read about opulent trains sweeping across well-manicured countryside to the pleasure of their occupants and profit to its shareholders, then this book is not for you. Like all such institutions, it was lovable and left behind a host of folklore. However derisive this may have been, it possessed another side to its character - it was a serious means of transport. This book is presented in an A5 format, with 280 pages, and around 200 photographs, maps and plans, etc. It is casebound with a gold-blocked spine and a laminated colour dust jacket.
