There is optimism and there is naivety

The Donegal News reports on a meeting held between representatives of a campaign group calling itself “Into the West” and Eamon Ryan TD, Minister for Transport, to advocate for a restoration of railway lines into Donegal.

Much as I support the encouragement of rail travel and the development of existing/new routes to do so, methinks that this group is on a hiding to nothing on this one. The only railways in Donegal for the forseeable future will be that at Fintown and Sir Gerry Robinson’s private line.
