The train station and the maintenance shed are great subject matter to photograph.  It sits in an area of waste land that is bordered by a housing estate on one side and the working track on the other.  A pathway from Ballisodare leads into the train station.

In 2004 there was a campaign to re-open Ballisodare Station.  Plans to develop a new station are also in the Ballysadare Mini Plan of 2009.
