Mount Pleasant has such a nice ring to it that it seems a nice way to start our week? Perhaps we should have saved this for St. Patricks Day to celebrate its anniversay?

Thanks to O Mac PRO for the location and the dates for the station.

sharon.corbet provides a very interesting link to which states "This one platformed station on the Up side opened in 1850. There was a loading bank and siding, originally a private siding for the D&BJR engineer, Sir John MacNeill, on the Down side. Northbound trains had to run past the station and reverse back in."

It would be nice to have your own private station if you were running late for work in the morning!!
