This is a photograph of the late Mr Tom Brennan coming home from work in the 1960s wearing his CIE work coat .Tom worked at Kildare station and at Cherryville junction 2 miles west of Kildare. One of his jobs was to pass the staff on to the train on the line between Cherryville and Athy. As this was a single track only one train could travel on the line at a time. There were two Instruments one at Cherryville one at Athy and one staff. If the train didn’t have a staff it could not pass.
