Welcome to Donegal’s only operational narrow gauge railway. Here, nestling deep in the heart of spectacular mountainous scenery steeped in tradition, myth and folklore, and running along the crystal clear waters of Loch Finn you are invited to relive those nostalgic days when Donegal had about 200 miles of narrow gauge railway operated by the County Donegal and Londonderry & Lough Swilly Railway Companies.
This unique journey is a three-mile return trip right along the shores of Loch Finn. The reopening on the 3rd June 1995 of this first section of the in town – Glenties railway restoration project commemorated the centenary of the original opening in 1895.
