Beautifully done history of the Tralee & Dingle Railway, a tough little narrow gauge line that connected the two towns from 1891 to 1953, with a side branch to Castlegregory. Although concerned with the railway and its equipment, the book also covers the people who built and ran it, the Kerry folk for whom it was a lifeline, and the visitors who recorded it over the years. Chapters cover the history of the line (first conceived in 1888), description of the route and its construction, accidents and incidents, railfan visitors and the photographic record, lore and legend, No. 5T's last run, and the temporary reopening of a short section of the line in 1995. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos as well as scale drawings of locomotives and rolling stock. 160 pages.
