A truly heritage experience travelling on a steam locomotive along a magnificent coastal stretch of line between Bushmills and the UNESCO World Heritage Site at the Giant's Causeway. The railway has been built to the Irish narrow gauge of three feet and runs for two miles along the track bed of the former Giant's Causeway Tram.

Bushmills Platform located at Tramway Drive, Ballaghmore Road BT57 8YS

Specially customised diesel powered locomotive with three passenger coaches, capable of accommodating up to 90 passengers, designed to enhance and recreate, in so far as it be possible, the passengers experience the original historic hydro electric tram. The breath-taking two mile extension route of the original track provides a nostalgic journey linking the town of Bushmills to the UNESCO World Heritage site at the Giant’s Causeway, on the stunning North Antrim coast.
