Wicklow County Council have a map showing railway stations which once existed in the county on their website with a short history on each: http://wicklow.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/index.html?appid=4d60c090b1454c8dae828c5ae261b6cf
I doubt if this is news to everyone, but it may be useful for some. (It is not called the Procrastination Superhighway for nothing. So here's to more time away from ....) OSI have a useful map viewer at http://maps.osi.ie/publicviewer/#V2,706063,772600,1,10 This shows today's rail lines (and everything else of course) but ... (I'm pasting next bit from an email to a friend) "to the right you will see 2 small panels - the lower one, Preview Map Series, has what you want. Top of that list is "street map", that is what you see when you zoom in, more or less today. Bottom of that list is "Historic 25"", that's about the year 1900, I estimate that from period of building the C&L Rly. around 1890, but the extension from Arigna station to the mines is not yet shown - it was built about 1919/1920". Since I wrote that I looked at CB&PR on this map and I see the Crosshaven extension (and of course change to 3ft gauge) is missing, so that puts it pre-1900. I wonder are these 25" close-ups all from the same time? They might be, but not necessarily. Others more knowledgeable on the matter will know more. I hope this is of some interest, certainly useful for track layouts, station details etc. Terry.
