Kingscourt train at Gibbstown near Navan
A train, from Kingscourt, approaching the level crossing, at the closed station at Gibbstown, north of Navan. The station had a platform on the Drogheda side of the level crossing (behind me) and a loading bank for goods at lower 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.
