County Donegal Railway(ex Dublin and Blessington Tramway) railcar no 3

The Dublin and Blessington Tramway ran from 1888 till 1932, mainly using steam engines but started to use internal combustion in its final years. This railcar was supplied by Drewry, and on closure was bought by the County Donegal Railway and converted from 5ft 3in gauge to 3ft gauge, and continued in use until the line closed, having been converted to a trailer coach in the 1940s. It has been preserved in this final condition. 

Requires finishing off, wheels and mechanism etc.
