Mountain Stage

This is the site of Mountain Stage statio,n between Glenbeigh and Kells, looking east in the direction of Glenbeigh. The trackbed is now occupied by the N70 road. There was a passing loop here but the platforms were staggered for no particularly obvious reason. The westbound platform was close by on the right and the eastbound platform in the distance on left. Only the station master's house survives off to the right. The line opened in 1893 and closed in Feb 1960.
