Visit The Giant’s Causeway and Bushmills Railway

The Giant’s Causeway and Bushmills Railway (GC&BR) is a 3 ft (914 mm) gauge narrow gauge heritage railway operating between the Giant’s Causeway and Bushmills on the coast of County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The line is two miles (3.2 km) long. The upper station, just below the Causeway Hotel, has a single platform and passenger, locomotive and carriage facilities, all built in traditional style for the line, which departs towards Bushfoot Strand down a gradient which is sufficient to make the engines ‘bark’ on their return.

It then follows the ancient sand dune system until it meets the River Bush where a newly installed bridge carries the line across. Just before the bridge is a passing loop, not normally used. Crossing Bushfoot Golf Course to meet Ballaghmore Road (which leads from Bushmills to Portballintrae) the line turns bringing it parallel to that road, which it follows to the lower terminus situated at the junction of the Portrush to Bushmills road. The GC&BR Bushmills station is a single platform with no buildings. Alongside the line there is both a cycle track (National Cycle Network 93) and a footpath.
