This should have been a Kingscourt Drogheda goods conveying gypsum from the mine at Kingscourt and general goods from Navan. There was no gypsum on offer. The locomotive ran with a brake van from Kingscourt and collected this train of loose-coupled wagons at Navan. Beauparc station still exists N9471 : Beaupark Station but the GNR(I) signal cabin has gone.
The Drogheda - Navan - Kingscourt railway :: O0974
Opened, in sections, by four railway companies between 1850 and 1875. Drogheda Navan closed to passengers in 1958, Navan Kingscourt in 1947. There are two short branches to Platin cement factory at Drogheda and the Tara mines at Navan. The Navan Kingscourt section handled gypsum trains until 2001. The line still serves the Tara mines.
