The Letterkenny to Lifford and Strabane Railway opened on 1 January 1909 and closed on 1 January 1960. This narrow gauge rail line was run by the CDR (County Donegal Railways Joint Committee). This line also stopped at Ballindrait, Raphoe and Convoy en route to Letterkenny.  This section of disused railway may have the potential to be developed as a walking/cycle route.
