The County Donegal Railways
- The County Donegal Railways Part One
- A History of the Narrow Gauge Railways of North West Ireland
- by Edward M.Patterson
- With 124 route miles, five termini and three junction stations, the County Donegal Railways were the largest narrow-gauge system in the British Isles. For the most part they traversed hilly and thinly populated country, but for two generations they kept busy and they were usually run with exemplary efficiency. Among other things, they were pioneers in the use of diesel railcars.
- This is their official history. It includes much unpublished material and deals with every aspect of the system's rise and fall. Operation during the Troubles, the economy campaign in the twenties, steam and diesel rolling stock, signalling, prosperity during World War II, and closure in 1960 are all discussed in detail; there are maps, track and locomotive diagrams, and reproductions of official records as well as numerous photographs.nbsp;
