Join amateur film maker A.H. Martin as a vibrant blue steam train makes a rare return to the Northern Irish landscape. The use of steam for passenger railways ended eighteen years before this film. However the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland tours have been keeping steam alive in Ireland since 1964. The passengers on board indulge in a nostalgic trip as they speed alongside the glittering waters of Belfast Lough.
