Each year the RPSI operates a weekend international railtour. This is something a little bit special, where we invite you to join our restored locomotives on our train across Ireland. With a full bar on the train, beautiful scenery, comfortable carriages and a traditional friendly welcome, our tours are fun and relaxing, and a great way to see the Emerald Isle.

The Main Weekend Event (3-Day Fare)

  • Includes visits to Bangor, Belfast, Coleraine, Dublin, Londonderry and Whitehead.
  • First public steam train to and from Derry since 2003!
