      Hi all,
      Does anyone know where I might get an online picture of the old bridge that passed over Adelaide Road carrying the railway over the road and into Harcourt Street Station? Apparently it was a fairly wide structure carrying multiple tracks. It’d be interesting to see what it looked like.

      There was a book publised 2 years ago about the Luas Line to Sandyford called the “Harcourt Street Line, Back onTrack” (Currach Press, Brian Mac Aongusa, Oct 2003) . There was a picture of the bridge in question.

      Thanks for that, does the photo show the bridge from above or street level?

      Try the Irish Railway Records Society. Their offfices are behind Heuston Station. They have a great photo archive. http://www.irrs.ie/

      The book illustration referred to above shows a view from the roadway below with a crane demolishing the bridge. Theres also a picture of the next bridge on the line over the canal ( Charlemont Bridge )
