Mystery carriage

On a recent visit to Warrenpoint, I noticed what appeared to be a railway carriage across the water near Omeath.



I then went onto Google Earth, and found said carriage, which turned out to be a grounded coach body, roughly where the trackbed of the old DNGR used to be.

Does anybody have any idea of the origins of this carriage?

I visited it a while ago, it was being repainted then - I recall the owner said that his father used to live in it.

There's also a lovely example of a GNR full brake in Blackrock, c.1880s again; any more info on it would be useful. Last wooden full brake in Ireland, perhaps, not including GSWR 69?

Please note that I didn't go around jumping fences into people's back gardens to look at carriages! :ROFL:


There was a GNR third at Ballyroney station in very bad condition until about this time last year
