The old station building, a rake of hopper wagons and a shovel. Despite appearances, this does not show how the wagons were loaded.
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.
