We decided to take this train hourney after reading the reviews here - but in the end felt that it was over-rated. there were a few great views but these were fleeting. We drove down the same route the next day and found that the views from the road were better and we could stop where we wanted
The train station at Derry is very pretty and the initial part of the journey parallel to the river was pretty. The short stretch parallel to the Brenone strand was extremely beautiful too. It was interesting to see the long stretches of grass farms - this was the first time we saw how the grass turf rolls available at garden centres are cultivated!
When compared to our drive along the Giant's Causeway Coastal Route which from Derry to Coleraine takes a similar route to the train, the drive was much better.
