“Traveler information (mis-)management (train service)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

Transportation service was "OK" (apart from the A/C chill) BUT information on Easter Tuesday schedule (same as Saturday) could only be found in small print (at the station + none found by me on website), while "funny" alcohol rules for the Easter weekend were all over the place (posters).
Classic traveler information management gone wrong...

“World Famous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Often topping the poll for viewings, this stetch of the Derry-Belfast line is an essential piece during any trip to the region. The moment passing through the mountain at Castlerock and onto the beach is a rare sight on any inter-city route.
Held in high regard by such people as Michael Palin (Monty Python) and even Michael Portillo on his 2012 tour of UK railways.

“Derry - Coleraine - Belfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

Took an early morning train from Derry to Coleraine. Visited the Giants Causeway that day, then took the train to Belfast that evening. Unfortunately we got an early train and it was still mostly dark out, so we couldn't see much of the famous scenery. Otherwise, it was a cost effective, fast and reasonably comfortable way to get around Northern Ireland.
