We are delighted to offer our two Swilly Books, “The Lough Swilly Remembered” (recently launched) and “The Londonderry & Lough Swilly Railway – A Visitor’s Guide” as a set for a combined special price combined of €20 (+ P&P), normally €23 (+ P&P)!

“THE LOUGH SWILLY REMEMBERED”  by Jim McBride has just been launched in the last few weeks. Jim has been involved with railway heritage and preservation for decades and is the Irish Editor for the Disused Stations website. The book looks at the last twenty years of the Lough Swilly Railway from the early 1930s, up to the closure of the railway itself in 1953. In this book, we travel on the Swilly, from Derry to Burtonport, and also visit Letterkenny and Buncrana. This story is told through many historic photos from the past. Over 50 unpublished photos have been selected of this forgotten Irish railway, which had some unique and distinctive features. This book is published locally, with all profits going towards railway preservation in County Donegal.

“THE LONDONDERRY & LOUGH SWILLY RAILWAY – A VISITOR’S GUIDE” by Dave Bell & Steve Flanders – This unique guide covers the entire route of the Londonderry & Lough Swilly Railway in four tours estimated to take one-day each, or you can take the tour from your armchair! The 96 A4-size pages are copiously illustrated with photos, sketch maps, and detailed station plans; the text includes all-important map references and lots of additional information

TOTAL COST: €23 plus €8 for P&P = €31
