Old Photographs & Reference Area

We have set up a Reference area in part of the shop, so people can use a computer to get access to an indexed database of over 3000 old photos of the railways in County Donegal. The photos have been provided by kind permission of a number of famous railway photographers and are also drawn from our own archives. We have taken a number of steps to make access to the photos as easy as possible for those who are unused to computers. There are also reference books, lists of previous employees, old photographs and memorabilia.
