This is a miniature railway operating steam, petrol and diesel hydraulic and electric locomotives.  The line is the longest 71/4” gauge railway in Ireland.  The extensions allow a variety of routes, providing an interesting journey of about 14 minutes. The railway captures the atmosphere of a full sized railway.
