Mogeely railway station
Mogeely railway station
A CIE 001 class locomotive stops at Mogeely with the daily (Mon-Fri) Cork - Youghal freight. The line from Midleton to Youghal opened in 1860, but lost regular passenger traffic in 1963, while the daily freight stopped in 1977. Cobh Junction - Youghal closed on 2 June 1988, although the section from Cobh Junction to Midleton has since reopened.
The Cork – Cobh, Cobh Junction – Youghal and Cork City railways :: W6872

The railway line from Cork to the port of Cobh was opened by the Cork & Youghal Railway between 1859 and 1862. Originally operating from a station at Summerhill directly above the Great Southern & Western railway station on Glanmire Road, Summerhill closed and services moved to the GS&WR station in 1893. Operated now by Iarnród Éireann (IÉ), this line is still open for passenger trains.
The railway from Cobh Junction (renamed Glounthaune in 1994) to Youghal opened to Midleton in 1859 and from Midleton to Youghal in 1860. This line closed to regular passenger traffic in 1963 and to all services on 2 June 1988. However, IÉ reopened the line from Glounthaune to Midleton in 2009, although there are currently no plans to revive the section from Midleton to Youghal.
Linking the GS&WR station at Glanmire Road with the Cork Bandon & South Coast Railway at Albert Quay, the Cork City Railway opened in 1912. While the CB&SCR closed in 1961, the Albert Quay site was retained for freight traffic. Running in the middle of some main roads and crossing the River Lee twice, the Cork City line occasionally caused traffic chaos. It closed in 1976 following completion of new freight yards at North Esk on the Cork – Cobh line and virtually no trace remains.
