DOWN MEMORY LINE
In this fascinating account of the last years of the Sligo, Leitrim and Northern Counties Railway, Michael Hamilton creates vivid pictures of:
- family life in a level crossing gatehouse
- the work of a boy porter in Dromahaire
- the duties of a guard on the trains travelling between Sligo and Enniskillen
He recalls the great characters of the line including: Tommy McTiernan, Boss Brannigan and Owen Rooney and his descriptions of passengers – the smugglers, the Scottish visitors, the honeymooners – are always direct and frequently humorous.
