Glenmore, Co.Kilkenny, was a small wayside station on the Dublin Wicklow & Wexford Railway's line from Macmine Jct to Waterford via New Ross. Glenmore was the only intermediate station between New Ross and Waterford, and opened with that section of the line in April 1904. The station had one platform on the up side, with a goods loading bank and shed on the down side. There was small single storey station masters house and corrugated iron station building, the latter sited on the platform. Passenger services over the line ceased in March 1963, but the section from New Ross to Waterford remained in use for ferilizer traffic until 1995, with the line being disused ever since. Today part of the single platform remains at Glenmore, with the station masters house now a private house.
Glenmore Station, looking north towards New Ross from the disused rusty track. On the left is the small station building, with in the background the single platform located on the up side of the line. The station closed to passengers in April 1963. Part of the singe platform at Glenmore still survives at the southern end of the station. Up to the 1970s there was once a typical Dublin Wicklow & Wexford Railway style station building located on the platform, constructed of corrugated iron, but this has long since been demolished.

The station building seen here is now a private residence. The station opened with the line from New Ross to Waterford in April 1904.
On the 10th February 1992, 001 Class loco No.055 runs past the station building at Glenmore as it travels towards New Ross to collect a fertilizer special. No.055 has since been preserved as a static exhibit at Castlerea, Co.Roscommon. ©Colm O'Callaghan The northern end of Glenmore Station, which is now part of a farm yard. The last trains to pass through here were in 1995, carrying bagged fertiliser from New Ross. This is the low rail overbridge at the southern end of Glenmore. On the opposite side if a roadway leading up to the former station. The disused track across the small rail overbridge south of Glenmore Station. Since the last trains ran in 1995, the New Ross branch has become heavily overgrown, as seen here looking towards Waterford.
This is Carrickcloney level crossing, the first located north of Glenmore Station. Although the track remains, the crossing gates have been removed and replaced by a mesh fence. In the background is the gate keepers house. The gate keeper at Carrickcloney level crossing near Glenmore certainly had a nice view from their house, overlooking the scenic River Barrow. In the distance are the Blackstairs Mountains. The red 'X' panel from the former crossing gate has been attached to the mesh fence. A view looking south towards Waterford from Carrickcloney level crossing, showing the grassy overgrown track. The former lineside telegraph poles remain in situ along this stretch. Another view of Carrickcloney level crossing. The road crossing the railway is merely a farm track leading down to the River Barrow. The last trains passed through here in 1995.
