Every year Donegal Railway Heritage Museum produces a new limited edition Donegal Railway badge. We are delighted that this year we have just launched our new exclusive badge, which this year is the iconic No 14 on the Londonderry & Lough Swilly Railway (LLSR). This follows on from our Railcar No 1 and previous to this, Donegal steam engine, Drumboe badge which are still available.
No 14 was manufactured by Hawthorn, Leslie & Co in 1910, and was scraped in 1943
This striking eye-catching silver badge is 37mm long showing a detailed side profile of No 14 loco in it’s famous Swilly dark green colour. The badge also has two butterfly clutches at the back, to ensure it doesn’t move once fitted to a garment. As we learnt from previous year’s badges, as it is a limited edition and exclusive to us, demand is again expected to be strong!
Finally, as you may be aware, Donegal Railway Heritage brought pack after much fundraising, the steam engine “Drumboe” returned home in 2021; proceeds from this badge go, not only towards the running of the museum itself which has been challenging because of Covid lockdowns, but also to meet the small shortfall in this exciting Drumboe project.
Cost: €8 plus €3 for P&P = €11
(Note: This badge is free, whilst stocks last, to renewing Members from July 2022. See “Ways to Support” tab on this website to avail of Membership)
