If the rail life of Ireland is in line with your interests, then Carleton Street Orange Hall (7.30pm) is just the ticket on Wednesday March 25, for a talk and films of the Old Railways.

Not so long ago, you could travel anywhere by train in Northern Ireland or the Republic, and while Minister Bill Craig wielded the axe north of the border, the south didn’t suffer nearly as badly. Portadown, once the railway ‘Hub of the North’ isn’t the ‘Crewe of Ireland’ anymore, but at least some train journeys remain.

The talks and films are presented by Michael McMahon, the promoters are Carleton Over 50s Association. The cost is £3, including supper.
