All Aboard at the Cavan and Leitrim Railway in Dromod.  © Bernd Biege 2014

The sleepy village of Dromod in County Leitrim has retained a mainline railway station (the trains from Dublin to Sligo actually stop here - Irish rail travel is not dead yet)), but the main visitor attraction is just beside it - where once the coal trains from the Arigna mines met the mainline, a section of the original Cavan and Leitrim Railway narrow gauge track has been restored. Complete with a typical rural station ensemble. And a collection of vehicles and paraphernalia that is nothing short of stunning.
