Dublin & South Eastern Railway Untitled
The first public railway in Ireland was the Dublin & Kingstown Railway (4 ft. 8 in. gauge), authorized in 1831 and opened in 1834. The Kingstown to Dalkey section was operated on the Atmospheric system for a short time in the 1840s. In 1846 it and a number of other small railways merged to form the Waterford, Wexford, Wicklow and Dublin Railway Company, and converted to 5 ft. 3 in. gauge. This morphed into the Dublin, Wicklow and Wexford Railway Company in 1860, and into the Dublin and South Eastern Railway in 1906. In 1925 it became part of Great Southern Railways.
