Iarnród Éireann Heritage and Enthusiasts
Iarnród Éireann has inherited a rich legacy of architectural, industrial and social history stretching back for more than 150 years.
The company’s heritage office is responsible for the conservation of the many protected structures, artefacts and installations across the network which reflects the distinctive styles of the companies which constructed them.
Iarnród Éireann’s heritage policy is geared towards;
- preserving what is best from the past in the context of the operating railway system,
- engaging with community groups and enthusiast bodies, and,
- facilitating the operation of vintage steam trains over certain routes to cater for the growing railway tourist market in association with the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland
