Engineer and businessman William Dargan set up a company and hired hundreds of labourers who would finish the line from Kingstown (Dun Laoghaire) along the coast to Bray.
The most impressive aspect of the project was Bray Station, which consisted of a long classical building, with dormer windows protected by a slanting roof, supported by a number of iron pillars. The broad platforms on either side of the line were occasionally transformed into a promenade to accommodate bands when inclement weather prevented them from giving outdoor recitals.
In July 1984 the DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) trains came into service linking Bray with Howth. This fast effective service helped to ease the commuting time for the growing population to and from the capital.
Sidetracked caches are intended to provide quick cache-and-dashes at train stations.
The cache is located outside the station, so there is no need to enter the station, or purchase tickets to find the cache. The cache is a magnetic micro, please bring your own pen and a tweezers might be useful. Please be stealthy as this is a muggle intensive area.
There is ample parking in the immediate area, but please watch for times when you have to pay & display. The DART and buses will take you within 100m.
