    The first Irish broad gauge heritage railway project in the republic of Ireland was launched a few years ago. It aims to establish a base at the disused Maam Cross railway station north-west of Galway city. The initial aim is a short running line within the station boundaries, with an intermediate aim of running about 2km, and longer term aim of an 8km running line along the old MGWR track-bed from Galway to Clifden.
    The project has so far not been reported on National Preservation, and support is needed, especially from those who would like to see a new-build MGWR broad gauge loco running in the west of Ireland. Please visit the website at https://www.connemararailway.ie/ which also has a link to the Gofundme page. The railway also has a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/connemararailwayman/
