Railway photographer Jim Edgar has put together in this book a collection of his photos of Irish railways between 1973 and 2012. Volume Three covers Dublin and the South East of Ireland. Starting in the Dublin area at Heuston Station and Inchicore Works, this volume covers the Cork Main Line as far as Ballybrophy before venturing to Waterford via Kilkenny. Next the “South Wexford” line between Waterford and Rosslare is visited, followed by a return to Dublin, this time arriving at Connolly station. The former sugar beet traffic along the South Wexford line is featured. To show the development of the railway system over the years covered, there is also a short feature showing scenes from the start and end of the period.

For all the changes we can see during the years covered by this book, some parts of the railway maintained the feel of a bygone era throughout the period. A wide range of passenger and goods trains feature, ranging from wooden bodied stock to modern air braked and air conditioned trains, and from loose coupled sugar beet wagons to container “liner” bogie freight trains.

Locos include the classes A (001), B (Sulzer, 121 141,181 and the first 201 class), 071 and the second 201 class.
