Ireland's Narrow Gauge Railways (X101)

Regular price £12.95 £0.00 Unit price per

Like most students of the Irish narrow gauge, the authors came to know of these little railways only after they had gone. Thankfully there was a band of enthusiasts attracted to these lines who committed their memories to print and picture, saving a flavour for those unable to have witnessed the railways at first hand. Transport museums and, more recently, preservation bodies, have also helped by salvaging some of the rolling stock. In recent years there has been increasing interest in the Irish narrow gauge among railway modellers, with an expansion in the number of commercial kits and products now available.

The factual information contained in this booklet has been gleaned over the years from diverse sources including the many books and journals listed and discussions with many like-minded individuals.

In compiling the various tables the authors have attempted to represent what they feel is the most reliable information. We are more than aware that differences of opinion exist and the passage of time makes access to original records more difficult. This work is not intended as a substitute for the many excellent books and articles on the subject and the reader is referred to a bibliography at the end of the book for a list of those available for the various railways.

There is a concise history of each railway, along with tables of dimensions of the locomotives and rolling stock. Each chapter concludes with a chronology and a table of distances showing route mileage.

Softback, 160 pages, black & white photographs, maps

If parcels are returned on account of an incorrect shipping address we will contact you to seek the correct address and also ask that you pay a contribution towards posting the parcel to you a second time. Similarly, if a parcel is returned to us because the local mail service is unable to deliver it (or you do not collect it from the designated collection point), we will contact you and ask you for a contribution towards the cost of shipping to you for a second time. 

UK

All orders over £20.00 are post free to all UK addresses. For orders of £20 or less, a £1.50 postage fee will be added. These are normally sent via Royal Mail 48 Hour (the business equivalent of 2nd class mail) which is not tracked. If you require tracking for your, tracking options are available for a small fee. If the service that you require is not shown, please get in touch with us and we can quote for your desired service.

Large, bulky or high value orders may be split in to multiple consignments or sent via courier. There is no additional charge for this and you will be advised at the order fulfillment stage if this happens.

Overseas

Overseas orders are charged based on weight, and postage will be automatically calculated at checkout. For a postage quotation, please add the items you want to your cart and proceed to the checkout. All orders are usually sent via Air Mail - this is not tracked. If you required your order to be tracked or sent by a different service, please contact us, preferably before checkout.

Royal Mail will only accept parcels up to 5kg in weight (2kg for Canada). If you are ordering multiple items that exceed these limits, please contact us first so that we can advise you of the appropriate shipping rate.

Due to the high volume of parcels going missing, we are no longer able to send untracked orders via third party mail handling services such as Parcel Motel. We are able to send untracked parcels to bona fide PO Box addresses, friends and family members and to work addresses.

Some countries charge import taxes and we suggest that in these cases, you asked for your order to be tracked so the local taxation authorities can trace your parcel.

Please note that courier services are unable to deliver to PO Box addresses. If you usually use a PO Box address, you will need to supply an alternative address if you require shipping by courier.
