Dublin Navan Railway Line
Navan was originally a significant part of the expanding rail network in Ireland. The Dublin & Drogheda Railway first constructed a branch form the Dublin-Belfast main line through Navan to the town of Oldcastle which opened in 1850. In 1862 the Dublin & Meath Railway constructed and operated a branch from Clonsilla to Navan off the MGWR main line to Sligo. This line was extended to Kingscourt in County Cavan in 1865 operated by the Navan & Kingscourt Railway. Both of these lines wsere eventually purchased by the MGWR while the Oldcastle line was eventually incorporated into the GNR(I). Navan railway station itself was a small single platform stop on the OLdcastle line. The main station for the town was Navan Junction, which had four platforms serving trains on both routes. The line was closed to passenger services in 1947 & to goods services in 1960. The line was reopened as far as the M3 Parkway in 2010.
