Locomotives of the GSR
This is a long overdue and detailed study of the locomotives of the Great Southern Railways of Ireland, which was the largest of the major Irish railways. It has been thoroughly researched by Jeremy Clements and Michael McMahon, using the archives of the Irish Railway Record Society in Dublin.
The scope of the book includes all locomotives inherited by the GSR in 1924, broad and narrow guage, described on a class by class basis, including the pre-1924 history of each engine. This is followed by the details of all locomotives built or acquired between 1924 and 1944 and their subsequent fate under CIÉ.
As well as steam locomotives, the book covers GSR steam and petrol railcars, and the unique Drumm electric trains. The book is illustrated with 346 black and white photographs.
