Kevin McCormack is a lifelong railway enthusiast who was brought up in Ealing, West London. Not surprisingly, Kevin was quick to join the Great Western Society, becoming its Secretary in the late 1960s/early 1970s. His retirement from the Management Council coincided with his purchase of an original Victorian Family Saloon railway carriage, which had been converted into a Thameside bungalow. This is now largely restored and kept at Didcot Railway Centre. With his Irish ancestry and family visits made to the Emerald Isle, Kevin naturally appreciated the charm of Irish railways in the 1950s and 1960s, which he has captured in this colour album depicting Irish Railways of that period.
