The stretch of railway line between Portrush and Magilligan has made Coast Magazine’s Best Scenic Seaside Railway Journeys.

Coast Magazine’s Madeleine Barber describes it as one of seven ‘iconic’ railway journeys in the British Isles having enjoyed the beauty the north coast has to offer.

She describes it as:

‘Nestled between craggy cliff-faces and golden sands, this line is the only track to run along the iconic Causeway Coast. Tunnels carved into headlands make it possible for the tracks to be a stone’s throw from the ocean. From Portrush, you can hop along to Bushmills via taxi, where during the summer months you can catch a historic steam train to the basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway.’
