Train entering Castlerock station
​One of NIR's 70-class DEMU sets brings a Londonderry - Belfast passenger service into Castlerock station. With the exception of one coach, the train is in the original class livery, introduced 1966 and modified only by replacing a UTA crest with the NIR logo from 1968. The last vehicle is a former GNR(I) "P" van, used for parcels. The roof of the since demolished signal cabin can just be seen.
