Available now - Irish Archive Volume 8 - Tara to Clara

 This DVD is yet another delve into the recordings made by Irish railway enthusiasts.

This time it covers the period 1987 to 2012.

With most Irish passenger trains now in the hands of railcars, we thought it would be the right time to savour an era when the locomotive was king.

 There is a major feature on the Tara Mines Trains, Ireland’s only remaining mineral traffic carried by rail. We also see, coverage of our exploits recording trains in the twilight “The Starburst Years”, views of Cement Traffic, now lost to rail. The IE Relaying Trains using Donelli system are put under the microscope, both in detail in their latest version and back in 1987 when we found an earlier version in operation on the Cork Main Line. We also pay a visit to Attymon and Dunsandle in County Galway, where the latter now hosts a small collection of railway exhibits, and finally we look in at Clara, where freight and passenger trains still pound past the single platform.

This video features coverage of the following locations - Alexandra Road Tramway in Dublin, Attymon, Beauparc, Birdhill, Buttevant, Cherryville Junction, Clara, Drogheda, Duleek, Dundrum, Dunsandle, East Wall Junction, Howth Junction, Kilsheelan, Limerick Junction, Navan, Port Laoise, Rush and Lusk, Sallins and Naas, and Tara Mines.


 This DVD is made in Widescreen (16 x 9 or 14 x 9) format.


Running time about 69 minutes approx. Price £16.95. Available now.


Price £16.95. Post and packing £1 per order (UK) £3 per order (outside UK)

1. Price and Postage

We have decided to reduce the price of the DVDs which WERE £18.95 to £16.95. That means that all DVDs are now £16.95. We now have to pay £3.00 for postage to Europe and £3.50 for North America and Australia. We cannot manage by charging £2.00 for P&P overseas so that will now have to be £3.00. Sorry about that, but you can see from the postage on the DVDs we are losing money by charging less than £3.00. Note that this is still PER ORDER, and not per DVD, so the more you buy in one order, the less the postage cost for each one.

2. Why does your email link not work?

Some people use their web browser to send emails and do not have an application set up to handle mail. This type of link will not work from any website you visit, not just ours, so you may wish to set up an application. If not, just send us an email any way you normally do, indicating which DVD you are interested in. We will send you the PayPal invoice. Contact us by email at marklejim {at], replacing the {at] bit with a @, and making sure there are no spaces. In your email please indicate which DVD you are interested in.

3. Easy Payments in Euros.

If you live in the Eurozone (Republic of Ireland and most of Europe) there is a cheap and easy way to make payments abroad. This is the BIC/IBAN money transfer scheme which all banks must offer as part of the rules of the Euro system. You just have to call into your bank, fill in a form, and the money is transferred. We can give you the reference numbers they require for this if you email or phone us. Once the money has arrived we will send you the goods. We will offer a good price in Euros and there is no currency charge by the bank as it stays in Euros all the way. Contact us for details. Or, you can use Paypal, as set out below.

4. Payments

You can browse this site without buying anything. If you wish to buy, please e-mail us with what you want. Then we send you an e-mail with a link to pay by credit card, or by "PayPal". Or, you can order by post and enclose a cheque in £ Sterling - overseas customers can buy a sterling cheque at most Post Offices.

You do not need a "PayPal" account to pay online by credit card. If you DO have a PayPal account you can use the "Send Money" option instead. This allows you to order and pay in one operation - this is the quickest method to use. Remember to indicate exactly which items you require. They will be sent to your address as soon as possible.

Unfortunately we cannot accept credit card numbers over the phone or Euro cheques any more, so please use one of the other methods. You can pay by cheque in pounds sterling using the order form. Clicking the link above marked "Order form and shops" gives a list of stores and mail order outlets in various locations.
