Advance ticket purchase is essential for all mainline trains - unless otherwise stated.

Attempting to travel without a ticket at the main departure station OR without a ticket and at a different station on the route causes the RPSI major problems, therefore you are very likely to be refused a seat on the train or be asked to leave if you do not have a ticket. Please purchase your ticket in advance.

Please Act Responsibly Around Our Trains

If you are going to watch, photograph or travel on an RPSI steam train, please remember that the trains are operated on the national rail networks along with scheduled passenger services. Trespassing to watch or photograph a steam train endangers your safety, the safety of others and disrupts the operation of all trains on the network - please act responsibly. Both Translink and Iarnród Éireann have severe penalties for trespassers.
