Video: Royal Train emerges from the Downhill Tunnel en-route to Bellarena


The Queen took a step back in time boarding a No 85 Merlin steam train at Coleraine station to recreate a small section of a trip she made during a visit to Northern Ireland a month after her coronation in 1953.

As the train chugged through the stunning landscape, which included views of Benone Strand, the cliffs at Downhill and Binevenagh Mountain, golfers, police officers, beach visitors and passers-by waved.

Here the Royal Train emerges from the Downhill Tunnel en-route to Bellarena.
