A Train Trip From Belfast To Derry

Note that I use Derry in the title of this post. This is nothing to do with politics, but just practicality, as it is shorter.

I don’t like towns and cities with dual names, as it makes things difficult for visitors. I wrote about it in Bilingual Signs.

I took these pictures on the way.

The trip along the Belfast to Derry Line is a good one and the train was comfortable.

The line is being improved, with plans including.

  • An improved station at Derry.
  • Faster line speeds.
  • Removal of single track sections of the line.
  • A possible station at Eglinton Airport.

In my view, the route needs an increased train frequency of perhaps two trains per hour.

Just looking at the population of Derry City as a few thousand over a hundred thousand, it would appear to need at least this frequency.
