Abandoned rail terminal

Abandoned rail terminal

This is the abandoned rail terminal at the old cement works [now known as Premier Periclase] in Drogheda. This rail terminal was the end destination for the clay that was taken from the quarry on the other side of the town of Drogheda. Many years ago, the rail line was also connected to some form of overhead transport system for the clay. Now I'm sure that was a sight to see. I think the clouds really add to the shot.

  • I've shot this before but nowhere near as well as this. Sadly, I'm old enough to remember the overhead cable thingy in action too :/
