Tara Street station, Dublin, Ireland
Author: Roadbed

Frequent service at the Tara Street station in Dublin, Ireland.  Interesting to see this 5'3" (1600mm) gage railroad in action.  No sign of freight activity, at least on this line, but lots o' passenger trains.

The only freight train in Dublin is the daily North Wall to Ballina (Co Mayo) intermodal.

When did the ore trains between Navan and North Wall stop running? I have heard the ore wagons were placed in storage at Limerick City.

Tara Mines was placed in a care & maintenance regime last year. But the owners, Boliden, have recently announced that mining will restart by the end of this year. Not sure what this will mean for IE, presumably the ore will move by train, but just how many trains is unclear.
