Gypsum train at Legga
Gypsum train at Legga
The Kingscourt Drogheda goods, hauled by 006, approaching Legga level crossing. The red gypsum is (allowing for the age of the slide and the effects of scanning) clearly visible in the hopper wagons.
The Drogheda - Navan - Kingscourt railway :: O0974
Opened, in sections, by four railway companies between 1850 and 1875. Drogheda Navan closed to passengers in 1958, Navan Kingscourt in 1947. There are two short branches to Platin cement factory at Drogheda and the Tara mines at Navan. The Navan Kingscourt section handled gypsum trains until 2001. The line still serves the Tara mines.
