  • Description

    Glamour and the personal touch come to the railways of Eire with the recent introduction of stewardesses to assist train travellers. VISNEWS filmed the stewardesses - in their specially designed uniforms- going about their duties on the journey between Dublin and Galway.

    The stewardesses give information on train services to foreign tourists, assist mothers with their children, and generally help to make railway travel more pleasant for passengers.

    The introduction of this new service is part of the Irish railways' campaign to induce more people to travel by rail, for which a Traffic Development Committee has also been set up.
