New industrial n.g. lines!

A new 3ft gauge line will open within the next month at Coolnagun, Co Westmeath, Ireland.
Serving two separate peat bogs, the route mileage will be 4 to 5 miles in all.
The peat will be railed to a tippler by the roadside for road haulage to Lanesborough Power Station.
Photos in the Ireland / Bord na Mona section show the site.

A second new bog line is under construction at Killaun bog, near Birr, Co Offaly. Track is about to be laid here and production should start Feb / March 2007.

Sites visited 4th and 5th September 2006.
