Rails Around Belfast (An Irish Railway Pictorial)

Sale price £11.00 Regular price £13.99

The latest addition to Midland Publishing's popular Irish Railway Pictorial series looks at the railway network which served the island's second largest city, Belfast. At the turn of the last century, Belfast was served by three independent railway companies which had their own termini in the city, the Great Northern, the Belfast & Northern Counties and the Belfast & County Down. The three systems were linked by the GNR owned Belfast Central Railway and lines along the city's docks. This pictorial review covers both the city and an area extending to Lisburn on the GNR line, Antrim on the BNCR system and Comber and Bangor on the BCDR. Though it largely focuses on the period after World War 2, it does acknowledge what went before. In addition to the passenger carrying lines, the book explores the lines linking the city's three termini and the buses and trams which were used by passengers transferring from one station to another.
