Dromod, Leitrim, Republic of Ireland
Discover the magic and charm of a late 19th Century narrow gauge Irish railway, located in Dromod village County Leitrim.
The Cavan and Leitrim Railway was one of the busiest of Ireland's narrow gauge railways. The story of the railway also combines that of this little known part of Ireland and its people. Locals were devoted to the Cavan and Leitrim Railway and it was this devotion which enabled the line to cope successfully with coal traffic.
This restored narrow gauge railway offers the visitor a chance to experience the age of steam transport. The railway brings you back through time to an era when our ancestors travelled through the unspoiled landscapes of Leitrim.
An extensive and nostalgic collection of steam, diesel trains, rolling stock and vintage buses allow you to trace the history of the Irish narrow gauge railway system. Diesel and rail cars run on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.
Tour groups are welcome. Please give prior notice where possible and it is advisable to telephone ahead and confirm that trains are running.
