This is not a great video by any means the camera man spent more time filming faces and odd bits of the factory but the train shots are very very few in poor light.

No worries, all you need to do is copy the youtube link from you address bar

 

You need the bit that looks like this

 

 

if there is anything after the v=XXXX string, you can leave it out.

 

Then just click in the Video Icon in the post, paste in the link, and the forum will embed the vid!

Sadly-30 years on from the video,this is the view near where

the a class and wagons was shown in the video with Dungarvan

bay in the background.The crossing keepers cottage is deralict

and you can just about make out the remains of ballast on the

line which was lifted in the late 90s and the remains of the former

crossing gates.

I have a great passion for that part of the railway myself Eamonn and made many visits during my life to those areas. It was a beautiful landscape on which to view a railway. We used to always take the coast road as it offered some great scenic views of the railway. It seems so long ago now.

 

Rich,

Thanks for posting,but this is not Castlemungret but is

the old Quigley plant at Ballinacourty near Dungarvan

That closed in the summer of 1982.

 

Your absolutely right i got my wires crossed and many thanks for pointing this out. Any chance Bosco you can change the heading on this post to read correctly?

God no bother,and thanks for posting this in the first

place as it show what is now history.Glad ye like the

photos and indeed I agree this crossing was the most

scenic in the country and why the line was never preserved

Going back 20 years when it was intact is beyond me.
