We will be joined on board by, Lauren McMullan, to bring us through our amazing flight of whiskey and she will be available to answer any questions you may have.

This special train will be departing Whitehead at 18:00 but there will also be the option of boarding at 19:00, at Belfast Lanyon Station (please let us know when you make your booking where you will join the train)

From Belfast we will travel out to Lisburn where after a short stop we will return direct to Whitehead station, arriving approximately 21:30. With our ‘Whiskey on the Tracks’ now at an end our passengers will be able to enjoy the sounds of the legendary ‘Cresent City New Orleans Dixieland Jazz band’ on the platform at Whitehead with the return journey to Belfast Lanyon scheduled for 23:15.
