Ballyroney Railway Station

Map Reference: J222377 (3222, 3377)

Ballyroney Railway Station was built in 1880 for the GNR(I). It is a red brick building with black brick trim. A three-bay two-storey section has gables facing the platform and presumably held the stationmaster’s accommodation.

Attached to the north side is a four-bay single-storey section. This held the waiting room. Access to the platform was via a glazed wooden screen. There are another smaller single-storey section attached to the south end of the station. On the opposite side of the track, a short distance to the south, is a goods shed.

To the north is a fine twin-arched bridge. The railway closed in 1956 and the station is now a private dwelling.
