A very busy train enroute to Lumiere in Derry city. We got on at starting point so had a shared table on the 'right' side of train for the magical scenery. It's a great journey and shouldn't be missed!

Just step on the train in Duke Street in the Waterside and sit down on the train and relax and enjoy your scenic journey on the river side of the train. It only takes approximately 40 minutes from Derry to Coleraine. There's not much to dislike about this journey it's smooth and very relaxing. This train eventually goes to Belfast. It usually gets very crowded after Coleraine as it approaches Belfast. If you can travel at times other than peak times they are usually quieter then. There are no refreshments on board, so you may wish to take a snack with you or a drink. There is on board loud speaker information on stops which means you have time to gather your belongings before the train reaches the next station. Great day out!!

I had heard good things about this method to go from Coleraine to Derry, and it lived up to them. The staff at Coleraine were eager to provide information relating to the schedule, and to assist with questions and needs of the passengers.

The ride had some very nice scenery and I was fortunate to be seated near a regular user of the train, and he provided insight into what was there and when to gain a peek at different things.

The whole operation was well run and on time. The ride was quite comfortable and relaxing.

Keep in mind the train station is across the water from the bus station and city center/walls; you can get on a shuttle bus for the short ride to the bus station (free).

Decided to leave the car at home and take train up to derry/Londonderry. So glad we did, train was spotless, comfortable and the view on the journey was just beautiful. Prices weren't too bad either, £7 per adult on Sunday and £11.50 Monday-Saturday. We will DEFINATELY be travelling by train again.
