Title: CIÉ Titans, Book One Author: Ed O’Neill Publisher: Irish Retro Transport ISBN: 978-1-5272-9499-8 Specification: 295mm x 210mm, 104pp, softback Price: £19.50 (€22.50)

Ed O’Neill has previously produced books dealing with Coras Iompair Éireann (CIÉ) single- and double-deckers in the 1970s and 1980s, but this one – the first of two volumes devoted to all of CIÉ’s Leyland Titans – goes into much greater detail and has brought out new essential background information going back to the first double-deckers to be operated in Ireland.

Although there are nearly 300 photographs, mainly black and white, it is not just another picture book with extended captions containing little information. There is the right level of detail with sufficient background contextual information to satisfy the curious reader.
