RE: Roger Farnworth Railways
The Cavan and Leitrim Railway

This is first of the main series of posts about the Cavan & Leitrim Railway. I have enjoyed reading Patrick Flanagan's little book published by Pan. It is rather dog-eared and falling apart now. The text of the book has helped me explore the line, even though I have done so from my armchair. References to the text of his book abound, and these are all credited in the blog.

In this post we review the history of the line and then, with the aid of a good few pictures, we look round Dromod Station as it was.

This post covers the tramway from Ballinamore to Arigna and completes the full length of the Cavan and Leitrim Railway empire. I am working on one further post which will pull together a few different things relating to the C&L.

Orkney Railways - Part 3

This is my last post about the railways in Orkney. It has been prompted by finding a secondhand copy of Wilfred Simms book - The Railways of Orkney.

RE: Roger Farnworth Railways
What is the longest load ever to be carried on rails?

Before looking at the link below, have a figure in mind. How long is the longest load to be carried on rails? Once you have that figure in mind, click on the link! .............

We crossed back from Orkney on 11th May 2019 and drove via John O'Groats and Wick before heading south through Inverness. About 6 miles north of Wick on the A99 we drove over a narrow gauge (metre-gauge) line. This was a surprise and it needed to be investigated. .... This post is the result.

The Cavan and Leitrim Railway

This is my final post about the Cavan & Leitrim Railway. It includes details about locos and rolling stock but starts with some information about the preservation society at Dromod and the heritage centre at Belturbet.

RE: Roger Farnworth Railways
The West Clare Railway again.

We have almost reached the end of the story of the West Clare Railway and the study of its route. The post below completes the details of the remainder of the line, covering the route from Moyasta to Kilrush and Cappagh Pier. One further post will follow eventually which will look at the Locomotives and Rolling Stock on the line.
