The following enquiry arrived via our web site. Can any one help please.

"I hope that you can help with my query. The old Station House in Carlingford will be under going some renovation work in the near future (information can be found at http://www.carlingfordheritagecentre.co ... on-project) and I was wondering if you have any information at hand pertaining to the Station House design and it’s architect.

All of my research to date mentions the Engineer/Architect William Baker as having built the DNGR but I cannot find any information about the designer/architect of the buildings. I am keen to know if there are other Station Houses built by the L&NWR in Great Britain and Ireland which are of the same design given the relationship between the two railway companies or if the DNGR building style is unique. I am providing a link to a survey of the DNGR after its closure with photos and descriptions of the buildings and their past and current usage which may be of interest to your society members (you may have the information already but hopefully not!) Link to survey PDF from Louth County Council http://www.louthheritage.ie/publication ... 577175.pdf "

I have provided the name of the LNWR Architectural Assistant, J.B.Stansby, at the time the building was designed. He worked for the Chief Engineer for New Works William Baker. Whether he was responsible for the design I do not know.

Further to my earlier phone message, have a look at the following web site related to the Llangollen railway extension to Corwen http://corwenstation-new.co.uk which has some historic documents - I have not yet had a good look through them.

As I suggested earlier - perhaps the archivist of Llangollen railway may have more information.

Best wishes
