Foyle Valley Railway Centre is dedicated to telling the rich railway history of the city and surrounding area. At the heart of the exhibition is a recreated railway station platform and within the displays visitors can find out about the various railway companies which once operated out of the city.

The museum hosts an exciting and fascinating collection of railway artefacts including the majestic County Donegal Railway steam locomotive 'Columbkille' and diesel railcars No. 12 (1932) and No. 18 (1942). The working diesel railcars run on a picturesque three-mile track through the nearby Riverside Park.

This is a non-guided facility with an opportunity to view the exhibits at your leisure. Recommended time for the facility is approximately thirty minutes.
