Streamstown, Co.Westmeath, was a wayside station on the former Midland Great Western Railway's main line between Mullingar and Athlone, which had opened in August 1851. The station's importance was increased in 1876 when it became a junction for the short branch line to Clara. However, passenger services over the branch were withdrawn in 1947, but it remained open for infrequent goods traffic until June 1963, by which time Streamstown Station itself was also closed completely. The line through Streamstown lost its regular passenger service in 1987, but the the Mullingar to Athlone route remained in use however for frequent freight trains up to the late 1980s, and latterly specials and PWD workings until early 2000s.
The station at Streamstown formerly consisted of Up & Down platforms, the latter been an island which also served the branch trains to Clara. The main station buildings were located on this island platform, while on the Up side was a waiting shelter, goods shed and loading bank. Today, the derelict platforms remain in situ, as does the shelter and former goods shed, but only the base of the water tower survives on the Down side, all other buildings having been demolished since closure in 1963.
