While the Irish Traction Group no longer operates its own railtours, you can view
a record of those that were run via the dropdown menu above (the list will be completed
over coming months). The Group still runs the occasional diesel gala at Downpatrick
& Co. Down Railway (DCDR). The last was run on 18th October 2014 to celebrate the
25th anniversary of the ITG.
The previous gala ran on the 18th November 2012, again at DCDR.
All four of the ITG’s operational locos were in action on the day and performed without
a hitch. Additionally and unusually, Plasser & Theurer tamper/liner Number 7 provided
the traction for BREL Railbus RB3.
