It is aimed in particular at older readers who may have spent childhood holidays in the land where their parents were born. Niall McCaughan, Manager of Donegal Heritage Railway Museum stated: “We are looking to trace people who had a direct experience of the railway before their final closure in 1959. These first-hand stories from the general public need to be recorded in writing, before they are lost forever.”
