List of Irish Level Crossings?

Question

Does anyone know where I might get a list of these including the crossing references e.g. xc37 etc? Been through my books and expected to find them but no..... Hoping for a historical list the may include some that may be already closed/disused

Irish Railways Today by Brendan Pender and Herbert Richards (transport research associates 1967) gives the mile route distance of each LC, but not the code number

Thanks, Des. That's the first place I went expecting to find them, Railway Lines of CIE & NIR Doyle & Hirsch doesn't have them either, unfortunately

That's because the crossing id's were only introduced 15-20 years ago. They're a pointless source of information anyway because along with level crossings they include every accommodation/black gate crossing, many of which weren't used in decades and have since been closed off permanently.

Thanks, both.

Waffles, that was very helpful . I look at the site , selected all but had not click don the LC button on the right. Anyway what I'm looking for probably does't exist presently and is probably a disused crossing in the Tullamore-Athlone section

The codes weren't in existence when those were published. Instead of a crossing being "OCD1234", it was "Mulligans No. 2", "Drumnagortihacket Gates" or "O'Hanlons Crossing"!

Another way of finding them is using street views on Google Earth. It is a torturous way of doing it and will require a lot of patience but you will get there.

I have a memory of this being a crossing in the 70s.
