The Fintona Tram

A comment by an acquaintance brought to mind the horse tram which served Fintona. I thought it would be good to look at what was a very short branch line. .....

The Londonderry and Enniskillen Railway opened the railway station in Fintona on 5th June 1853. A short time after the Londonderry to Enniskillen Railway completed its mainline to Enniskillen (in 1854). mainline services were withdrawn from Fintona (in 1856), and the link to Fintona became a branch from the mainline at Fintona Junction railway station. Most passenger services on this branch line were then provided by a horse-drawn tram car. Since the line’s closure, the tram has been preserved at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum at Cultra, County Down.
