We’re the only full-size heritage railway in Ireland. RPSI in Whitehead operate on NIR and Irish Rail tracks – they don’t have their own line, and the Giant’s Causeway and Bushmills Railway, Fintown, etc., are all narrow gauge railways (i.e. the width between the rails is 3ft, not 5ft 3in).
For instance, an NIR train could run on our lines but not at the Giant’s Causeway. This allows us to run vintage wooden bodied carriages that can no longer run on the main line, as well as recreate some of the structures and features of the railways of days gone by.
