View northward, towards the ex-Cork, Bandon & South Coast terminus. The line closed to passengers on 1/4/61, but goods traffic continued until 1976.

While altered from W6871 : Cork, Albert Quay Goods Yard, this was still recognisably as the Cork Bandon & South Coast Railway left the facility when passenger services were withdrawn by CIE on 1 April 1961.

After closure of the Cork City railway in 1976, the site of Albert Quay yard was quickly cleared, with a new road constructed on part of the former railway right-of-way. In more recent years, the area to the right has been developed as office accommodation, although this is believed to be only partly let.

Much before, recent and after shots of Albert Quay goods yard where the Elysian stands now and busy roads converge. The second photo shows the An Post sorting office that used to be there. By the time I took photos of the site it was long gone.
