Michael H.C.Baker presents his illustrated talk on Travels around Ireland since 1959.
The railways of the UK and Ireland have much in common, - the names Maunsell and Bullied immediately spring to mind, each being the CME of an Irish Railway and of our Southern – but there is much which is individual and unique about the railway scene on the other side of the water. I first visited in 1959, have written several books on aspects of Irish railways including the first proper history, in 1972 for Ian Allan, and we’ll be looking at pictures taken since then the length and breadth of both the 26 and the 6 Counties.
