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

Such hassel free travel. leave your car and take this train to Belfast, on its clean and friendly ,efficient service. Enjoy stunning scenic countryside/sea views as you travel ,with no care about traffic jams, parking spaces. Arive fresh and ready to hit the city with plenty of energy.

A pleasant journey from Coleraine. Trains of good quality. No buffet car. but wonderful views. Worth seeing but not worth making a special journey just to see. best combined with another adventure

The ever changing scenery is not only beautiful but interesting. Our conductor gave us a running commentary which was so unexpected! He did so with grace and humour which was one of the highlights of the trip. The train is quiet and comfortable and the complimentary bus at the end takes you right into the centre of Derry. Perfect day... More

Great way to travel. Used the railway for a day trip to Portrush. Excellent and great standard? Staff were very good and helpful at both the station and on board the train. Would advise to use as the journey is great and the scenery is picturesque!!

i took this route on their family-day with 3 kids aged 2,1,1. the service, cleanliness, toilet facilities, helpfulness with the double buggy (and one on the back!) was great and very much appreciated, especially as I was quite apprehensive about taking my 3 on my own! I didn't realise how much the kids would love the experience or how easy... More
