A scheduled stop this time. Lady Jane simmers gently at the head of a mid afternoon arrival from Waterville.

You can see that the platform has been designed to allow for the possibility of a second track. This would of course require reconstruction of the station approaches.

(The platform bench was in the paint shop.)

The down starting signal drops into the lower quadrant. The section is clear and Lady Jane gently eases the two coaches forward to clear the platform.

A station slip section would enable operation of terminating services by allowing the locomotive to reverse around the coaches and then couple to the opposite end of the train for the return journey... but...on the other hand, Caherdaniel's attraction is its simplicity...!
