Episode 3 - Borris Railway

In this episode, Billy and Fergal return with a Borris Tale rather than a Borris Trail. Tracing where possible the original route of the Old Borris Railway, they tell the story of this railway and its legacy. Although large portions of the old railway are not easily accessible they show how the recent redevelopment of the Viaduct has opened up a portion of its route for visitors to enjoy.
