Would wish to pick the brains of people learned about Irish railway matters: concerning dates of withdrawal of passenger services on assorted 5ft. 3in. gauge branch lines in the Irish Republic. I gather that -- especially when such closures took place in the 1960s -- total abandonment was often concurrent with passenger withdrawal; and on the whole, I think I'm fairly cognisant with which lines continued in use for freight "of some shape or make", and for how long, after passenger services ended. Passenger withdrawal dates though, I'm fairly vague on -- would be grateful to be informed. Lines concerned -- no particular order... Banteer -- Newmarket Woodenbridge -- Shillelagh (early-ish, I'm thinking -- 1940s or before?) Macmine Junction -- Waterford Bagenalstown -- Palace East (pass. early 30s, I have an inkling -- lasted much longer for freight-only) Thurles -- Clonmel Roscrea -- Birr Birdhill -- Killaloe Ballingrane -- Foynes Enfield -- Edenderry (pass. service withdrawn pre-WW2, I suspect) Port Laiose -- Mountmellick Streamstown -- Clara Clara -- Banagher Kilfree Jun. -- Ballaghadereen Claremorris -- Ballinrobe And: victims, I suspect (perhaps mistakenly) of the fuel shortage in the bitter winter of 1946 / 47 (passenger services suspended, supposedly temporarily, but never resumed) -- please correct me if mistaken. Sallins -- Tullow Goolds Cross -- Cashel Fermoy -- Mitchelstown Kilmessan -- Athboy Crossdoney -- Killashandra And finally, two branches in the Republic, of the Great Northern Railway of Ireland: Drogheda -- Navan -- Oldcastle (I have 1958 dimly in mind, but am not sure whether that's right). Dromin -- Ardee (pass. service withdrawn pre- WW2??) Would be very grateful for any enlightenment on this matter.
