The Tracks of My Railway Years
This is a Personal Journey on Irish & UK Railways from the 1970s. Author Roy Carlisle was born in Belfast , grew up in Carrickfergus and has lived beside railways for most of his life. In his early to late teens, he was one of an intrepid group of "gricers" or railway enthusiasts from Northern Ireland that photographed everything that moved on the Irish Railway System in the 1970s, despite the "Troubles." On graduating from Queens University Belfast, Roy pursued other hobbies, married and moved to England where he now lives with his wife and two sons. As a Marketing Consultant and Business Coach, Roy has previously published articles and contributed to Business Books, as well as speaking at Seminars. This is Roy's first railway book! Although these days his"Railway Gricing" is usually confined to taking the train to London for work or occasionally visiting preserved railways in England,he has now travelled on trains across the world much further afield from Finaghy in South Belfast where it all began!
