The Donegal Railway Heritage Centre received a surprise gift in the post this week from a very special, and famous, film star!
Staff at the centre in Donegal town were delighted when they opened the package to find a beautiful signed poster from actress Jenny Agutter.
Jenny just happened to star in one of the most famous railway films ever made – The Railway Children.
“Jenny had heard about the recent return of the famous Donegal steam engine ‘Drumboe’ to our museum after her restoration,” a spokesperson for the centre said.
“She sent us this lovely gift with a letter telling us about her love of steam engines. Jenny is currently starring in a new sequel film, The Railway Children Return. Hopefully, she might visit and climb aboard ‘Drumboe’ one day.”
