As part of our strenuous efforts to improve our appearance to the public prior to an anticipated opening this summer – we have embarked on several measures to make our station site more attractive.
On Saturday we erected new but traditional picket fencing, as well as resurfacing our Down platform! We are still waiting for a builder to repoint and repair our Victorian water tower, prior to replacing the water tank which disappeared in the 1950’s – with our ‘new‘ one ( dating from 1879!!! ). This will have a huge effect on the appearance of our station!
Repairs continue on our beautiful dining car – to make it watertight and weatherproof – after the recent and severe Connemara winter!
