The Cavan and Leitrim railway was one of the busiest of Ireland's narrow gauge railways. The story of the railway is intertwined with that of this little-known part of Ireland and its people. Locals were historically very devoted to the Cavan and Leitrim railway, and it was this devotion which enabled the line to cope successfully with coal traffic in days gone by.
Today, the restored narrow gauge railway offers you the chance to experience the age of steam transport. The railway brings you back through time to an era when our ancestors travelled through the unspoilt landscapes of Leitrim.
An extensive and nostalgic collection of steam and diesel trains, rolling stock, and vintage buses allows 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. It is advisable to telephone ahead and confirm that trains are running.
