Belturbet became part of Ireland’s great railway boom in the late 19th century when it was chosen as the terminus for a branch line of the Great Northern Railway in 1885 and the regional narrow gauge line to Cavan and Leitrim, also terminated at the town two years later.  Belturbet had the distinction of having the only cutstone building in the GNR network.  However, the great railway era was short lived and many social and political factors impacted negatively on railway economics.  Ireland’s loss making railway network was cut drastically in the 1950’s and Belturbet ceased to operate in 1959.  For many Irish railway stations this was the end of the story but happily Belturbet was granted a new lease of life when the local community group decided to totally restore the station as a visitor centre.
