Former magnesite plant, Ballinacourty
The magnesite-processing plant at Ballinacourty opened in 1970 and closed in 1982. It was served by a short branch off the remains of the direct railway from Waterford to Mallow. The photo was taken when a railway enthusiastís special visited the line - four days before official closure of the branch. It remained in-situ until (at least) 1993.
