Know I have a few other bits. The Rail Line, was the Harcourt line, Martin. It was closed in the late 1950's. You should be able to find lots of information on it. The Luas now travels on quite a large section of the old rail line.

There is a famous picture, of a steam engine that crashed through the station wall of Harcourt Street, it shows the engine hanging half out of the wall, way above ground level.

Good luck with your research.

Will keep a look out. We live in Arigna where there was a railway line going from Arigna to Belturbet. Our road is unofficialy called The Railroad as the line followed the same route. It closed in in 1959.
