23 May 2020 – Laying tracks at Maam Cross

As per the Government Road Map re Covid 19 we were able to reopen our site at Maam Cross to continue (voluntary) work to bring trains back to Connemara.
Currently, we are constructing a temporary ’Pop Up’ 3’ narrow gauge railway to allow us to run a train this year – the 125th anniversary of the opening of the Galway to Clifden in 1895!
After the celebrations marking this important milestone we will remove the temporary track and continue the (re) laying of the Irish Standard gauge 5’3” Permanent Way throughout our site – with opening of our railway station and the running of trains for the public in 2021.

Please help us in any way you can – to achieve the return of trains to this glorious Connemara setting!
