Rails Through Tipperary: Limerick to Waterford Including Nenagh, Killaloe and Cashel Branches, Thurles to Clonmel and Limerick Junction (Colourpoint)

Back Order

In Rails Through Tipperary: Limerick to Waterford a variety of locomotives, carriages and freight traffic are shown on the line from Limerick to Waterford, along with the branches and section of the Dublin–Cork main line that intersects the route, from 1960 onwards.

Running through the scenic ‘Golden Vale’ of County Tipperary the railway is viewed amongst the pleasant backdrop and timeless allure of Ireland’s ‘Premier County’ and depicts the changing network and declining services that run through this beautiful rural area.

As well as following the route of the old Waterford, Limerick & Western Railway main line, this volume also follows the Nenagh branch from Limerick city to Ballybrophy, along with the short Killaloe branch on the shores of Lough Derg. Likewise, there is a section of the main Dublin–Cork line from Ballybrophy, through Thurles to Limerick Junction and the erstwhile Cashel branch line connected to it. The route from Thurles to Clonmel also features.

The introduction is followed by a map showing the lines covered, then draws primarily from the photographic collection of Barry Carse, along with a number of other contributors. At the end of the book there are five track plans showing Limerick Junction, Thurles Beet Factory Sidings, Roscrea, Conmel and Fethard; a list of the different types of locomotives and passenger carriages which ran over the lines detailed in the book; and a gradient profile for the Limerick to Waterford line.
