Owner description: The Downpatrick and County Down Railway runs through the drumlin countryside of County Down - St. Patrick's Country - over the River Quoile and under the graceful Down Cathedral. With a mix of steam and diesel trains, and vintage carriages, there's plenty for train fans of all ages - from wee kids to "big kids". Run by volunteers, society membership entitles you to free travel.

It was a great visit and great for all the family. All the members are lovely and willing to chat about what they are doing. There was a huge renovation happening when i was there.. so I'm dying to get back to see what has changed!
