Dublin to Ballina and Westport & return


£65 / €70

 The latest in the series of diesel railtours aimed at raising funds for the overhaul of our diesel locomotives.

The tour will travel from Dublin (Connolly) to Athlone, Claremorris and Ballina, return to Claremorris and then visit Westport before making its way back to Dublin.

A number of photostops are planned for the day.

A special request is currently with Irish Rail for the train to be hauled by a pair of 071 class locomotives from Dublin to Claremorris. A loco change has been requested for Claremorris and then another, subject to availability, in Ballina. When the train returns to Claremorris from Westport the pair will once again take charge for the return run to Dublin.

In any event the train will feature 071 haulage and hopefully some multiple working. As soon as we have confirmation or not on the multiple working we will let you know.

As with previous diesel railtours this one is sure to very popular and will sell out quickly so don't delay and get your booking in as soon as possible.

The train will be made up of our Cravens coaching stock complete with usual facilities of snack car serving a variety of hot and cold items throughout the day alongside our renowned bar car with draught and bottled beverages available all day.
