James Moran introduced me to Liam Woods at his home, where I listened to Liam as he recalled his experiences as a carriage-man working on the beet line from Wexford to Carlow. He named all the stops on the line, and described his own work in the last cabin of the steam train, and the many mishaps suffered along the line. It was a very cold and lonely occupation, working by night but his great sense of humour allowed him to laugh and joke about his career.
