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.

 

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 bodies 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.
