Its a pain when you have two trains calling at Mosney a few minutes apart of when a Dublin bound service has to cross in the face of a north bound service. Mosney closed before the significant increase in train frequencies which happened in 2003/4. Tara Mines trains regularly pull in to get out of the way.

As posted the lease expires this year, so any decision hangs on what happens next and in the current mess the government will be quick to shut and merge as much it possible

The station is only accessible from the Mosney camp which limits local access, which is already served by Gormanston and Laytown.

Trains which terminate at Balbriggan depending on timing either turnback at Balbriggan or run via Mosney. Wrong line working is available between Skerries and Balbriggan northbound and the northbound platform has a starting signal and points for Dublin
