And it's not just me saying that. It's none other than the intrepid, former conservative MP, Mr. michael Portillo. The train departs from the Waterside station in Duke Street, site of the famous anti- internment rally, led by internationally known MPs John Hume, Ivan Cooper and Eddie McAteer. When they reached the West end of the bridge they were attacked... More

It may be a slow train journey, but life's too fast, just sit back, look out the window and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Whether it's looking out at the bay or at the inland cliffs, you will enjoy it

This is a must if travelling into city if you have time. It's not the quickest nor is it the fastest but the slow train passing some of the best view you will see on any train journey. It is truly wonderful when passing the fields and beaches. When I was younger the journey was so magical and to this... More

I used the train everyday for 3 weeks to go to Belfast. I enjoyed the journey most of the time except at weekends - the train was overcrowded and I had to stand most of the way from Belfast to Coleraine. There is limited parking at the Derry station and very few facilities - would need an upgrade. On the... More

Must-do activity in the North West. Breathtaking journey along the banks of Lough Foyle, past the beautiful beaches and threw the tunnels near Downhill. Take the train all the way to Portrush if you can!!

Used this service with my husband travelling from Belfast to Derry .The journey takes over two hours and I was surprised to find that there is no meal/beverage service so anyone travelling needs to be prepared for this .Possibly the positive side to this was that the carriages were extremely clean unlike the Enterprise the cross border train which we...

This is a very easy railway to use and a beautiful trip. I didn't find much to do in Coleraine, though. It was fun to just take the train somewhere!

If it's good enough for Michael Palin, then it's good enough for me! Unfortunately the weather interfered with the views on the way to Derry but, on the way back, wow, what a load of outstanding scenery! Especially as the rain had made loads of waterfalls, too. Train is warm and punctual, so well worth the trip!
