The cast of musical The Train gather on the platform where the original Contraceptive Train left for Belfast in 1971 (top).
Rehearsals began at The Abbey Theatre this week for the Rough Magic production written by Bill Whelan and Arthur Riordan, celebrating the train’s famous journey.
The show runs at the Abbey Theatre from April 7-15, before opening in Belfast later this month.
