Downpatrick and County Down Railway go to the locomotive over hot pictures posted online

They said yesterday that the images had been maliciously manipulated and were launching an investigation

Downpatrick and County Down Railway (DCDR) management were left stunned this week after reviewing extremely offensive footage and photos provided to them by this newspaper.

They said yesterday that the images had been maliciously manipulated and were launching an investigation.

All of the shocking footage was allegedly shot and recorded around the organization’s historic railway museum in the heart of Co.’s picturesque downtown.

But the charity, which was hit by severe flooding this week, has thanked the Sunday World for bringing the matter to their attention.

The charity said: “Downpatrick & Co Down Railway has been made aware of photographs purportedly taken from our own social media pages.

“We can categorically confirm that none of these images or their captions were published by the DCDR on its social media or websites.

“The deliberate, malicious manipulation and presentation of these images by unknown parties to imply something it is not is offensive to everyone.”

“We believe the original images came from private sources and were either manipulated or presented out of their original context.

“We would like to thank the Sunday World for bringing this to our attention and rest assured that we take such matters very seriously. We will conduct a full investigation into this.”

The Downpatrick and County Down Railway has been derailed by a sex scandal. The flood-hit railway company is now embroiled in a sex scandal

A 20-second video shot on a cellphone appears to show a man simulating a sex act on a train.

As well as the footage, three still images containing sexual content and relating to the Downpatrick and County Down Railway were also passed on to police Sunday world in the last days.

One shows a man in a short-sleeved shirt sitting on a station wall while touching his crotch.

Another image shows a man in maintenance technician overalls holding tools in his right hand. A red and white sign strategically placed in his groin reads “Touch me.”

A third photo shows an older man wearing a black baseball cap and a white T-shirt with a black British Rail logo emblazoned on the front.

In a clarified image, the man – believed to be in his 50s – was seen holding a metal horn protruding from his groin. A DCDR representative told us that this person was not one of its volunteers.

All photos provided to us bear the Downpatrick and Co Down Railway Facebook logo with the caption: “Do you know where your children are now?” They are dated March 16th.

After reviewing the footage and photos for several hours and conducting a preliminary review, a spokesperson for the charity said he was confident that none of the offensive footage or images had appeared on the organization’s Facebook page.

The DCDR spokesman also said the organization had not ruled out commissioning the PSNI to investigate the matter, which it considers to be highly inappropriate and offensive.

Another offensive image that has angered DCDR management

The Downpatrick and Co Down Railway is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Northern Ireland.

Run entirely by volunteers, it operates a three-mile passenger line between Downpatrick and the old Inch Abbey on the edge of the busy market town.

The inventory includes steam and diesel locomotives with vintage carriages serving four stations spread across the rolling hills and drumlins of Co Down.

Just last weekend, Downpatrick station – which is 150 years old – was full of smiling schoolchildren eager to ride the special Halloween steam train.

But the persistent flooding of the last few days brought the popular tourist train service to an abrupt standstill.

The sidings where the historic steam and diesel trains stop were waist-deep in water, with only the raised ticket office able to escape the flood.

The Ministry of Infrastructure has tasked a team of experts with finding ways to lower water levels in the city’s main shopping area as quickly as possible.
