This year Irish Rail- Iarnrod Eireann will be taking part at this years National Ploughing.

We are building a real level crossing include track and infrastructure. We will be replicating a collision at the level crossing between a train and a car. A real crashed car and replica piece of a train will be used. The objective of our attendance is to promote level crossing awareness and increased safety with road users.

We will also have an awareness campaign running to highlight the overhead height restrictions at our railway bridges to drivers of lorries /hgvs.
