    I would be interested in seeing some routes from Northern Ireland. A few helpful details about it:
    • It's operated by Northern Ireland Railways (under the umbrella of Translink)
    • It uses CAF Class 3000 & 4000 DMUs, as well as NIR Class 111 Locos for engineering works and Class 201 Locos with De Deitrich stock for the Dublin to Belfast Enterprise service, operated jointly with Irish Rail.
    • Typical routes include Newry to Bangor (all stops and express), Belfast to Derry, Belfast to Coleraine, Coleraine to Portrush, Belfast to Larne Harbour

    There's also some route videos provided by Translink on their YouTube Channel

    Belfast to Portadown (part of the route to Dublin)

    Belfast to Larne Harbour


    Belfast to Bangor


    Belfast to Cullybackey (one stop before Coleraine)


    Coleraine to Portrush


    Coleraine to Derry
    This one cool because it crosses the only moving river bridge on the network
