Tracking the Ghost Train

Here is a link to the mini-documentary I made about the West Clare Railway.

My thanks to all the people who contributed to it and who gave me great leads and stories … enough to make a full length documentary!

It’s dedicated to my mother & and her sisters, my grandmother, and great-grandmother – all of whom travelled to Kilkee on the West Clare.

So after all the work … here is Tracking the Ghost Train

 

I’d love to get your feedback … and any stories you have about the West Clare Railway.

Working hard on my mini documentary for the Diploma in Radio.

Had a great trip down West Clare way last Thursday to Moyasta Junction where number 5 steam engine, the Slieve Callan, from the West Clare Railway is kept in a purpose-built shed. Got a great tour from Stephen Whelan, which was really appreciated.

The engine will be out on the tracks during the June Bank holiday and would be a great day out for young and old. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for full details and opening hours.

We picked the best day of the week for the journey, so we dropped by the White Strand beach near Doonbeg for a walk with the dog. And there was fish & chips for lunch in Kilrush, with a coffee in the wonderful Potter’s Hand Café.

Would it have been a trip to the seaside without a 99 on the way home?Of course not.

All that, and I got to relive my childhood when I climbed aboard the Slieve Callan. A happy day.

Choooooo, choooo!!!
