The Railways of Bord na Mona Industrial Narrow Gauge in the 21st Century by Ted McAvoy. The 3ft gauge railways of Bord na Mona were by far the largest network of narrow gauge ever seen in the British Isles. Moving as much as 4 million tonnes of peat each year, they featured more than 200 British built locomotives, before building their own from the 1990s. Each year around 200 miles of temporary tracks were laid.

This book covers all aspects of the railways since 2000. Includes full colour photography.
