The ‘Burma Road’: Carrownloughan level crossing house, county Sligo (1895)

Three views of an abandoned corrugated-iron level crossing house in the townland of Carrownloughan in county Sligo (south of Coolaney). Remarkably similar in terms of materials and design to other level crossing houses built throughout Ireland in the 1880s and 1890s. Here is the map link, and a sunny-day image from Google Streetview (taken in October 2009).
