Lonely Planet review

From mid-June to mid-September, plus December, St Patrick’s Day, Easter, May Day and Halloween, this working railway museum runs steam-hauled trains over a restored section of the former Belfast–Newcastle line. There is a halt next to the grave of King Magnus Barefoot, a Norwegian king who died in battle in 1103. The ticket price includes a return journey on the train and a tour around the engine shed and signal cabin.
