ItineraryDublin to Cork, Cobh, Limerick, Ennis, Athenry & return
The latest in the series of diesel railtours aimed at raising funds for the overhaul of our diesel locomotives will feature a mix of both 071 and 201 class haulage.
On the day the train will depart Dublin Connolly with a smart run down the mainline to Cork. Here we will have our first loco change for the run out to Cobh where we will regain our original locomotive for the next stage to Limerick. This stage will involve a first for diesel railtours with non-stop run through Cork via the avoiding line up to Limerick Junction and then arrival into Limerick. At this stage there will be a break for just over an hour to allow for servicing of the train and our next change of locomotive. Departing Limerick we then head up the Western Rail corridor via Ennis and Gort before we join the Galway to Dublin line at Athenry. We then make our way back to Dublin via Athlone, Portarlington and the mainline before arrival back into Dublin Connolly.
A number of photostops are planned for the day including less visited stations on the Cobh line and along the Western Rail corridor.
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.
Be sure to book this railtour early as like previous tours it is sure to sell out fast.
