I walked from Coolaney to Carrowmore Station. I abandoned this project when a dog followed me from a farm. Though a friendly little fella, it ended up getting completely lost; I'm not sure if it found it's way home. I would like to continue this project at some point. It is fascinating to walk the line; it gives a different view into the surrounding countryside and it is always interesting to be in a place where others rarely go.

Disused railways are fantasic linear nature reserves, with trees growing through the tracks and wildlife all around.

It is always interesting to see how these spaces are used in human terms also. In my experience derelict spaces are always used in one way or another. Most interesting of all to me are the train stations and crossing houses that litter the line.

I was very fortunate to be allowed into Coolaney Train Station to take photographs. After the station closed it was used as a residence for a number of years. It is now derelict, although its owners still use the platform to dry washing.
