The platform at Bray Station became an early-morning music venue on Monday morning for the start of RTE's Big Music Week.
The week, which is underway as we speak, is a celebration of the best of Irish music.
Eleanor McEvoy was in Bray to board the train for the start of that celebration this week.
There were also performances by Peruvian jazz band Phisqua, as well as Luane Parle and an Celtic Grace Gospel Choir.
RTE's bespoke music train is covering the breadth of the country this week with the Big Music Train House Band on board for the duration.
There were visits to the platform on the inaugural morning by members of Bray Laker, school children and many other visitors.
The train set off from Bray to Connolly Station for the start of the John Murray Show from 9 a.m. with much more musical talent, from Damien Dempsey to Kodaline.
After visiting Newbridge, Carlyw, Waterford, Galway, Mayo, Cork, Kerry and Tipperary, the train arrives back in Dublin on Friday. There will be a charity concert in aid of Barnardos on Saturday October 5 featuring acclaimed Irish acts such as Sharon Shannon and Jack L.
