If you travel from Westport in the West of Ireland through Newport and Mulrany to Achill Sound today, here and there you will see overgrown sections of railway embankment and a newly constructed 'Greenway' cycle path. There is the magnificient stone viaduct at Newport which stands as a reminder of the once busy and thriving Achill to Westport railway line.
This wonderful book chronicles the life and times of the Achill Railway, discussing the trains and mechanisms that were used as well as the effect of the railway line on the local people of the areas between Achill and Westport. The book includes some wonderful photographs of that era which makes this book a very valuable item for those interested in that era.
