We missed most of the scenic views as we were moved by bus due to rail works. Just a wee scenic train journey with refurbishment works being carried out at the Waterside Station

We had read a lot about this rail journey and wondered if it could possibly be that good - well, it was even better ! Took the busy train from Coleraine, which then made its way to Derry along the beautiful coastline. We had planned to take the car, but the rail fare is great value and this journey is... More

I visited in August with my family as part of our summer holiday. The views are wonderful and it's unlike any train I've ever been on. The staff are very friendly and it's good value for money, especially when travelling with a family. I will definitely be recommending and will hopefully return again soon.

Justly praised as a journey of special scenic interest. Advice: sit one side of the carriage on outward journey, and the other side coming back. And now tyhe track is relaid it is a smooth and comfortable ride.

We travel this section of the railway as part of our journey from Belfast to Londonderry once a year. We don't have trains where we live and love to have a relaxing journey gazing out at the passing scenery....it is just wonderful.

It is extremely popular and the views are great! The grain station is close to city centre. Some B & B's will pick you up at station; taxis are not expensive.

Spent a lovely day in Derry having travelled by train. Walked back to the station over the peace bridge looking forward to a cuppa while waiting for the train. What a disappointment! 4:30 & all locked up - only a vending machine & very few seats. Come on you can do better for a station at the end of one... More
