A biography of of a family of railwaymen written by eminent author on Irish railway matters, Ernie Shepherd.
No less than 13 members of the family, spread over four generations, would be involved in railways spanning a period of nearly 130 years. Their exploits would not only be in Britain and Ireland, but also extend to in Australia, Burma, Ceylon, Cuba, Egypt, Malaya, New Zealand, Sudan and Venezuela.
