“THE LOUGH SWILLY REMEMBERED” – Available NOW!

Donegal Railway Heritage Centre is delighted is announce the publication of a new railway book, titled “The Lough Swilly Remembered”, By Jim McBride.

Jim has been involved with railway heritage and preservation for decades and is the Irish Editor for the Disused Stations website. The book looks at the last twenty years of the Lough Swilly Railway from the early 1930s, up to the closure of the railway itself in 1953. Through this book we travel on the Swilly from Derry to Burtonport, and also visit Letterkenny and Buncrana. This story is told through many historic photos from the past.

Over 50 unpublished photos have been selected of this forgotten Irish railway, which had some unique and distinctive features. This book is published locally, with all profits going towards railway preservation in County Donegal.

The new book is just €13 + Postage of €4 = €17
