Dr EM Patterson, BSc, MSc, DSc, MPhil, MRIA, FRSE was born at Bangor, Co Down, in 1920 and educated at Bangor Grammar School and The Queen's University, Belfast. He was trained as a geologist but in 1941 he moved to Scotland to take up employment as a research chemist at ICI (Explosives) at Ardeer, Ayrshire. His interest in geology continued to flourish and in 1947 he moved to St Andrews University where he lectured in the Department of Geology and Mineralogy. In 1953 he married Violet Kirk (nee Adams), a Queen's graduate, and returned to ICI at Ardeer the following year, working there until his retirement in 1981. In Ireland his focus of interest was the railways in the north of the island. He wrote nine books, covering seven of the narrow gauge lines (two in this book, formerly published as 'The Ballymena Lines', as well as 'The Great Northern Railway of Ireland' and 'The Belfast and County Down Railway' (two books). An updated edition of 'The Clogher Valley Railway', with additional text, was published by Colourpoint Books in 2004 and a similarly updated version of 'The Ballycastle Railway' in 2006. His last book was 'The Castlederg and Victoria Bridge Tramway' (Colourpoint 1998), published just after his death. The posthumous award of MPhil in 1997 by The Queen's University was for his work on the industrial archaeology of gunpowder manufacture.
