The Railway Preservation Society of Ireland was formed in 1964 to preserve Irish steam locomotives, carriages and rolling stock and to operate them on the Irish railway network for everyone to see, appreciate, enjoy and travel on. The Society currently has around 1,000 members from all across the world and depends on its volunteers to keep its stock of steam trains operational. 

Check out the Trains & Events page for a complete list of the trains we plan to run from Belfast, Dublin and at Whitehead, and to purchase tickets. Or have a look at our Meetings programme.

Our Whitehead Railway Museum is open to the public. Tickets are available to purchase at the Museum. We also offer packages for schools, groups and businesses.
