Crosshaven, Co.Cork, was the terminus of the narrow gauge Cork Blackrock & Passage Railway line, which ran from Cork City south to Crosshaven around Cork Harbour. The section from Crosshaven through to Passage East was single track, but beyond Passage it was double track all the way to Cork City, the only double track narrow gauge line in Ireland. The Great Southern Railway took over the CB&PR in 1925, by which time the line was under competition from buses, resulting in the closure of the rail line in 1932.

Today only one of the concrete platform faces of Crosshaven's original long island platform remains. The original corrugated iron station buildings have long since been demolished. Just north of the station on the approach to the town the tall brick piers of the viaduct that carried the line over a small valley remain.
Crosshaven Station, terminus of the CB&PR line from Cork city. Today, only the concrete platform edge remains. This view is looking north towards Passage. Another view of the remaining platform at Crosshaven station. The station buildings once stood where the school is now visible in the background. This is Crosshaven Station shortly afer opening in 1904, showing the island platform, signal cabin and the corrugated iron station building in the background. ©Irish Railway Record Society Another shot of the platform at Crosshaven; this end still has its caping on. The platform was of the island type with two tracks either side of its face.
A general view of the station site, with the concrete platform visible on the left. The station buildings at Crosshaven were of the corrugated iron construction, similar to that found at nearby Carrigaline. A remarkable survivor opposite Crosshaven Station is this original CB&PR covered van, which probably hasn't been used since 1934. Closer view of this CB&PR covered van, showing end on face and part of the underframe. Just north of Crosshaven are these tall brick piers which once carried the line over this small valley outside the town.
What must have been an impressive looking viaduct in its heyday. The line was built in the 1900s so it is not surprising to find brick and concrete been used. The CB&PR mostly followed the banks Lee estuary all the way to Cork city. This is the trackbed just north of Crosshaven, now a scenic pathway. An ornamental signal has been added. This is a rather odd mock halt just north of Crosshaven on the line. The name boards werw obtainted from Irish Rail.
