Recommended Posts

Helen's Bay railway station is the nicest and most traditional railway station on the Bangor to Belfast line. The station in the grand Scottish Baronial style, built in 1863, was the creation of Lord Dufferin, through whose land the line was laid. His family had their own private entrance and waiting room. The architect was Benjamin Ferrey. The station building is no longer owned by the station. station.jpg Helen's Bay station

The Belfast – Bangor line was isolated from the rest of Ireland’s railways in 1965 with the demolition of a bridge in Belfast to accommodate road widening. The link was restored in 1976. In the period of isolation there was a train every 30 minutes from Belfast Queen’s Quay. IMAGE_467.jpg
