Project "Nancy" Overview


Welcome to the Cavan and Leitrim Railway

The museum that was established in 1993, is run entirely by volunteers. The museum is located beside the Irish Rail station in Dromod on the grounds of the old Cavan and Leitrim Railway yard.

Today 0.4 kilometers has been restored and remains preserved after its closure in 1959. Following the closure, all which remained in Dromod was the Station House, the engine shed and water tower. Today they have been restored and are been preserved. One of the original locos (no. 2) and one of the original carriages are preserved and on display at the Ulster Folk Park and Transport Museum, Cultra and No. 3 "Lady Edith" is in the United States at the New Jersey Museum of Transportation.

We are reopen on Sunday 1st of April 2018.

Pump Trolley Project:

Volunteers at the railway have recently completed a replica Pump trolley. These trolleys were infamous in Wild West films. The trolley is built using the wheels of a former Bord na Mona Wickham Railcar, with a brand new body and pump mechanism built by one of our volunteers. 
Please see video below of Michael Portillo with our own Michael Kennedy, while filming "Great British Railway Journies" (C) BBC. The pump trolley is proving quite a popular feature with tours. If you would like to enquire about booking for use in film hire etc. please email dromodrailway@gmail.com
