ORANMORE RAILWAY STATION
Oranmore station was opened
by the Midland Great Western Railway
on the 1st August 1851,
and closed to both goods and passengers
on 17th June 1963.
Fortunately, the station was re-opened on the 28th July 2013,
albeit in a slightly different location,
a couple of hundred yards from the original MGR station.
On closure in 1963, the original single story station building
was sold into private ownership
but an adjacent oil siding remained in use until the early 1980s.
The new station on the Dublin / Galway line is served by
23 Weekday services,
22 Saturday services and 15 Sunday services,
and boasts a 140-space car park
complete with battery charge points for electric cars.
The pictures featured were taken just a couple of days after the station opened.
