A gypsum train, from Kingscourt, approaching Tara Mines Junction N8567 : Oldcastle and Kingscourt Railway Junction. The junction (out of picture) had just been built on the site of the former Navan West Junction hence the signs of excavation on the right.
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.
