Our railway is closed

Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, we are closed to the public and all visitors for the rest of 2020. Sadly, this includes the popular Christmas and Halloween events. 

It is not possible to book any tickets at this time.

Please see our Covid-19 appeal page for more details.


No – you’re thinking of Hornby trainsets!

Our line is built on an original railway line that was closed in 1950 – the line originally went to Belfast and Newcastle back in the past – it’s not like a toy train set! We do have a triangle of track, which is an original feature of the BCDR layout, whereby Belfast-Newcastle express trains would meet the branch trains from Downpatrick to Ardglass.
