Belturbet, Co.Cavan, was the terminus of a short branch from Ballyhaise on the Great Northern Railway's Cavan line on the Irish Northwest. The branch opened in 1885, and two years later it made a connection with the Cavan & Leitrim 3ft narrow gauge line from Ballinamore, which occupied the roofless western end of the station platform. Passenger traffic on the GNR line ceased in 1957, but goods traffic continued until 1959 when the C&L lines were also closed completely. One of the main flows from the C&L to the GNR at Belturbet was coal from the Arigna mines, which was then forwarded to the Drogheda cement factory.
Today, Belturbet station has been fully restored, the station buildings, platform, train shed complete with track, goods shed and engine shed have been preserved. I visited the station on two separate occasions See also the Belturbet Station Museum.
