Steam Train

A brand new wheelchair accessible steam train in Stradbally has been launched.

Laois Sports Partnership and the Stradbally Steam Association welcomed the Brennan family from Ballylinan to try out the new ramp onto the train.

Laois Sports Partnership organised for the ramp to be installed and young Aimee Brennan was very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

They would like to thank you to Cllr Paschal McEvoy for funding this project and Stradbally Steam Train Committee who worked long hours throughout the winter to make this possible.

The work of this committee is all on a voluntary basis. Sean, Alfie and all the crew do incredible work.

Laoi sSports Partnership would also like to issue big thank you also to Majella Fennelly and James McGovern of the SVT Community Hub.

Here are a few pictures from the very talented Adrian Hogan Photographer:
