Track map

Anyone who has taken a train ride at NIRT in the last few years will realize that we have only been using a very small proportion of our track. Of the 1½ mile track, we have only been permitted to use ¼ of a mile of that. This has largely been down to the safety of the old wooden sleepers upon which our tracks are laid. The good news is that is all about to change!
