The magic of rail’s golden age has been brought to life at Kilmeaden, Co Waterford: a heritage narrow gauge railway follows 6km of the route of the abandoned Waterford – Dungarvan line. The track runs mostly along the picturesque banks of the River Suir between Kilmeaden and Waterford, offering panoramic views of the River Suir, rolling farmland and mountains.This is the setting for this week's Homecooked. Donal cooks Toulouse Sausage & Puy Lentil Stew, Harissa Fish, and a delicious Salt Baked Salmon for the passengers waiting for the next train.
