“Lough Swilly Remembered A forgotten Irish Railway”

Tuesday 11th April, 7:30pm

Venue: Main Hall, Colgan Hall, Carndonagh

 The Colgan Heritage Committee in association with Donegal Railway Heritage Museum are delighted to announce that there will be giving a talk on the Londonderry & Swilly Railway (L&LSR) on Tuesday 11th April in Carndonagh. The lecture by railway historian and Donegal Railway Museum Board Member, Jim McBride is titled “The Lough Swilly Remembered – A forgotten Irish Railway”. Jim has also the Irish Editor of the Disused Stations website.

The presentation will cover the history of this famous railway and will showcase many unique unpublished photographs which have never been seen before, from the 1930’s right up to its closure in 1953. The photographs are part of a new book produced by Jim for the Donegal Railway Museum, and will be available on the night of the talk.

There will also be an opportunity for local people to talk about their direct experiences of the  railway, and members of the public are also encouraged to bring in anything they might have connected with the railways to encourage further dialogue about this important part of Donegal’s history.
