Irish Railway Memorabilia
The Headhunters Barber Shop and Railway Museum have one of the largest collections of Irish railway memorabilia on display. Which starts at the reconstructed booking office where the ticket collector (a statue) invites people to get on a tour. Once you step on board, you will be taken through a tour that travels from Fermanagh and the border counties until the closure of the lines in 1957. All this includes different exhibits which are created differently, such as the Station Master’s office, booking office and signal box.
While walking inside, you will get the chance to see uniforms, signalling instruments, signs, timetables, tickets. As well as those photographs from the three local railway companies: The Great Northern Railway, The Sligo Leitrim and Northern Counties Railway, and the Clogher Valley Railway.
A Unique Museum
This unique museum was created by the Johnston family as they had a genuine love for railways and history. It has become one of the most popular attractions in Enniskillen. We fell in love with the idea of the place as a whole and loved the experience we had there. This place will definitely be a recommendation for those who are interested in the world of railways. It’s also a great place to get a haircut, so if you’re in Enniskillen make sure you give this place a visit.
