At intervals of about 10 years there was a ghost train by this part of the country.

It comes form the North-Fermanagh and goes along by the slopes of the Cuilcagh Mountain and on by the Leitrim Mountain till it disappears from view.
It looks like an ordinary well lighted railway train and goes at about the same rate-just right through the fields and rivers and always in silence.
It was last seen about 7 or 8 years ago but has been going for a very long time.
Pat McGoldrick, Uragh, Swanlinbar is one of those who saw it last time.
