Trackwork Project

Phase 1: Dromod to Clooncolry

We have completely re-laid the running line from the platform out towards Clooncolry. We are just 15 panels away from the end of the existing running line .

 

The track renewal is focusing on replacing expired sleepers with replacements and completely replacing dog spikes with screws on and clips the running line. 

This has required much investment in screws, bolts and sleepers. 
We need your help!

We would like to thank the Department of Culture, Arts and Heritage for their assistance in supporting our track project by assisting us with the purchase of 60lb rails from Bord na Mona.

Phase 2: Loop installation

The medium term objective will be to install passing loops or run around loops at either end of the running line at Dromod station and at Clooncolry. This will allow us to ensure the loco is always facing the direction of travel.

This involves the purchasing of pointwork which is expensive, so we need your help.
