Collooney South

This is the Great Southern & Western Railway station in Collooney, Co.Sligo, called 'Collooney South'. It is located on the 1895 built Claremorris to Sligo line, known as the 'Burma Road'. Passenger services on the line ceased in 1963, but it remained open for goods traffic until 1975. The GSWR station retains both its platforms, station building, water tower and stone built good shed. A link line to that of the Sligo Leitrim & Northern Counties Railway's Collooney station diverged just east and passed beneath the Midland Great Western's line to Sligo, while the GSWR line curved to the north to join the Sligo line at Collooney North Jct. Today, the 'Burma Road' is still in situ albeit in a derelict condition.
This is the much altered Great Southern & Western station in Collooney, known as 'Collooney South' on the line from Claremorris to Sligo, which closed completely in 1975. At this time Collooney South Station was very much overgrown; the station building just visible in the distant, along the ivy covered water tower complete with tank. This is the former stone built goods shed at Collooney South, located at the north end of the station. It is seen been renovated into a private house. The rails can still be seen at the former Collooney South Station. The line between Collooney and Claremorris remains in situ, though disused.
This is Ardcotten level crossing just south of Collooney on the line to Claremorris. The crossing keepers house remains in a derelict condition.
