The Dingle Train...
The very name of the Tralee and Dingle Railway is enough to evoke considerable emotions whether stemming from the immensely beautiful Dingle Peninsula itself or the wonderfully friendly Kerry folk or the raw courage of those who built the Railway through some of the wildest Irish countryside and then struggled for half a century to keep the line running..
Thirty one miles of narrow gauge railway left Tralee - the county town of Co Kerry - striking westwards into the Dingle peninsula, crossing the Slieve Mish mountains at Glenagalt and on past Annascaul to Dingle itself. A short extension dropped down to Dingle Pier - almost the most westerly railhead in Europe but for a few yards.
Much of the material found within these pages has been contributed by correspondents or has been summarised from various Tralee & Dingle Railway publications. The foremost source has been "The Dingle Train" by David Rowlands, Walter McGrath and Tom Francis, which is an essential companion for any student of the Tralee & Dingle Railway. No attempt has been made here to mimic the vast amount of information found within this and other excellent T&DR books.
