Description

James Moran joined the railway in 1950. In this recording he speaks about the work he was involved in, which focused mainly on the beet wagons, delivering the beet to the factory. This was all night-shift work. James recalled the people who used the train, the railway houses, the railway road transport, the ‘Northern Special’ and the ‘Wexford Special’. He spoke about the railway staff and ‘characters’. James has a passion for collecting local historical items, including a very rare manuscript entry book associated with the Fever Hospital in the early 1840s.
