Recommended Posts



Just posting this because one or two members of this forum are already planning to be at Downpatrick on 17th March. If there are any of you going, do make yourself known to me (I'll be on as train guard). Trains will operate to an enhanced timetable with the first departure from Downpatrick (probably*) at 1100, 1120 from inch Abbey. Newly restored O & K No. 1, newly repainted, will haul most trains though the morning ones will be either A39 or 146. I will post exact detals of the timetable when it's finalised, b ut on the basis of previous years it will have departures from Downpatrick at 1100, 1200, 1300, 1400, 1445, 1530, 1615 and 1700, and from Inch 20 minutes later.


Parking is at a premium in the town that day, so it is advisable to drive to Inch Abbey (if approaching from the Belfast side) and get the train into Downpatrick. If approaching from the Ballydugan side it's not so bad.


(* Based on St P's Day timetable in recent years)
