Virginia Road Station was located on the March 1863 built Dublin & Belfast Jct Railway's branch line from Drogheda to Navan and Oldcastle, which the Great Northern Railway took over in 1876. Passenger services on the Oldcastle branch ceased in 1958, with the section from Navan to Oldcastle closing completely in April 1963. Virginia Road Station had just one platform. The station building dates from the 1850s, and is unlike any GNR and earlier D&DJR structures. The building has recently been restored and is now in use a cheese manufacturer. At the east end is the stone built road overbridge, which had steps leading down to the platform. The disused GNR signal cabin, once located at the west end of the station, and was demolished in the 1980s. The station itself was located some miles south from the actually Co.Meath village of Virginia, with the word 'Road' emphasising its distance.
