Irish Railways - Baltimore To Belfast
  • Description

    From Baltimore To Belfast.

    In 1951 the teenage son of an American diplomat arrived in Ireland, where his father had posted by the State Department. That young man, Richard D Kehm, was a keen railway enthusiasts and he owned a cine camera. Between 1951 and 1953, when the family left Ireland, and in visits later i th decade, Richard set out to record as much of Ireland's railway system on cine, as he could.

    In this first selection of his films we journey from one end of the country to the other visiting locations and viewing trains, many of which appear in this series for the first time.

    Highlights include, on the 3ft gauge, steam on the West Clare and the famous cattle specials on the Tralee and Dingle Line, and on the broad gauge the Dublin Cork main line at a period when almost all the trains were hauled by steam locomotive. There are extended sequences at Kildare and Limerick Junction, steam on Dublin's Harcourt Street LIne, the Great Northern Railway's Hill of Howth tramway and the variety of motive power which could be seen on the GNR main line in the early 1950's.

    The programme concludes with the sight of an ex-Belfast and County Down Railway Baltic tank locomotive at work on the Bangor line.
