GIANT'S CAUSEWAY MAY 2017 - Frank Bagshaw

Frank Bagshaw has recently visited Northern Ireland and found the last remaining tram track from the Belfast City Tramways.
Add caption
Frank rode the Giant's Causeway and Bushmills railway in Northern Ireland - currently diesel propelled/hauled in a fixed formation on 3' gauge track. It runs for 2 miles from the Giant's Causeway to Bushmills along the bed of the former Giant's Causeway tramway. Bushmills is famous for is whiskey distilling - the oldest licenced distillery dating from 1608.  Seen here is the "tram" and it's diesel locomotive modelled on the design of the former tramway vehicles - although they were open sided..

Anybody know (without looking it up) what gauge this Belfast City track was laid to?
