    The still-complete, original and unaltered subway must be unique in Ireland's disused station network now.

    Any others, apart from (filled-in??) Ballymartle, Co Cork?

    Carrigaline, presumably also filled in but still down there?

    Excluding the railway theme they are a beautiful set of homes. The missus even said she'd have no problem with us upping sticks and moving.

    Rich,

    Charm oozing potential. Exterior and grounds looks like it hasn't been properly maintained for years. Some fun heating that gallery with all that glass. Wonder if stone floors were lifted and insulated. Shame the old signal left to rot.

    Tynan, Co Armagh, and nearby Glaslough remain untouched since 30.9.57, though the latter is currently being restored.

    Tynan still has original paintwork.

    Amazing, what a B&B it would make! The signals are brilliant, how has it all survived for so long?

    B&B? - a perfect ancestral home with room for we oldies, the boys plus their families, each in their own demesne!!

    Pity I'd have to murder the Boss, as she'd never move to Ireland!

    No good having a LGB garden railway - only a 12 inches to the fut job would do - maybe the RPSI could loan the buyer a 101 Class?

    No - thinking out of the box - if you could afford that place, you could probably afford to have a replica BCDR tank built and a train of their six wheelers.
