Cahirciveen

Caherciveen, or sometimes spelt Cahirsiveen, was the second last station on the former scenic Farranfore to Valentia Harbour branch in Co.Kerry. Cahersiveen is a small town and the majority of branch line services terminated there, with only a limited number of trains continuing the last few miles to the harbour opposite Valentia Island. All station buildings at Caherciveen have been demolished since closure in 1961, but a small railway corrugated iron shed used by local merchants still stands at the site of the level crossing off one of the roads in the town. A long viaduct just north of the station site remains, crossing the wide estuary. Former C Class Metrovick No.227 was moved here as a static exhibit and numbered C202 and given a 1950s silver livery. Sadly No.227 was heavily vandalised and had to moved from the site at Caherciveen.
