Spans the period from the 1880s to the 1930s, set against the backcloth of the economic, political and social changes and events taking place in Ireland and on the wider stage at the time… The result is an illuminating insight into the history of the most important railway networks in Ireland during this period – the Great Southern & Western Railway (GS&WR) and the Belfast & Northern Counties Railway (B&NCR), viewed through the careers and experiences of these three remarkable men – Robert as Works Manager and then locomotive Superintendent of the GS&WR at Inchicore, Dublin, James as Secretary and General manager of the B&NCR at York Street Terminus, Belfast, and Henry as Chief Clerk of the B&NCR (Northern Counties Committee). Well illustrated with contemporary photographs of all aspects of the brothers' careers.
