Derry railway museum to reopen in 2018

Many years ago, the railway museum in Derry City, built on the site of the GNR(I) Foyle Road Station, was closed, apparently due to differences of opinion with Derry City Council.

The Derry Journal reports that the group that are taking over the building – “Destined” – have indicated that when the locomotive “Meenglas” is returned to the site in May 2018 (currently at the RPSI base in Whitehead, Co. Antrim), they would be open to the formation of a new Foyle Valley Railway Preservation Society.
