  1. I believe they're planning to use it next as a community centre or something, it has been a school previously..
  2. I get the impression they just found a few bits of old track and bits of sleeper, and threw them on the ground any old how, just as a token memorial, it wont be a section still in place. Where the track was going thru the station has been filled in to 'ground level'. Its just a flat area now behind the building.
  3. There's a little memorial stone and a few feet of track nearby..pic taken when over that way last year.
  4. The Ballinamore station building is still in good condition, and in use as far as I know (not as a railway station of course! ). I got the Mrs to take some pics recently when visiting relatives nearby..
