Farranfore to Valencia Harbour Railway Vol 1

Details

Planning Construction and an outline of operation The railway to Valencia Harbour was opened in 1893. It was the most westerly point in Europe which could be reached by train. The branch (of almost 40 miles in length) left the Tralee-Mallow main line at Farranfore and headed west through some of Ireland's most spectacular scenery as it climbed through County Kerrv's mountainous countryside, along Dingle Bay's southern shore. Perhaps surprisingly the railway survived early cutbacks of the rail network in Ireland, seeing the introduction of diesels and just surviving into the 1960s. The book is to A5 format, it consists of 152 pages, with 120 illustrations, which include architectural plans of the stations at Mountain Stage and Cahirciveen, and a full set of track plans. It is printed on art paper throughout and has a laminated card colour cover, perfect hound with a square-backed spine.
