“County Donegal by Rail in Colour” by John Langford


Category: Tag:


“County Donegal Rail in Colour” by John Langford is a hardback book of colour photos taken of the railway by John Langford, who visited the line during the summer of 1959, having heard it was to close and wishing to record its activities. A number of these pictures have been published before in various places, but this special collection has never before been published together. There are over 70 colour photos each of which has been carefully and informatively captioned using John’s notes taken at the time. This all-colour photographic collection gives a unique flavour of the line in its last year of operation showing both steam and diesel trains, passenger and goods, and stations and countryside.

This book would not have been possible without the support of Donegal Local Development CLG
