See J4155 : Former Ballynahinch Junction station (1983-1). The view, also from the Junction Road overbridge, showing the two Orenstein & Koppel steam locomotives mounted on a short piece of track. They had originally worked for Comhlucht Suicre Eireann/The Irish Sugar Company and were acquired with the intention of reopening part the line as a preserved railway. Nothing happened. The engines eventually found their way to Downpatrick J4744 : Crossing the River Quoile.
The Belfast and County Down Railway

The Belfast and County Down Railway ran from Queen’s Quay station in Belfast to Castlewellan via Comber, Downpatrick and Newcastle. There were also lines from Comber to Donaghadee via Newtownards, Belfast to Bangor and branches from Ballynahinch Jct to Ballynahinch and Downpatrick to Ardglass. The lines opened between 1848 and 1892. All closed by 1950 except for Castlewellan – Newcastle which survived until 1955 as part of the GNR(I) route from Belfast via Banbridge and the Bangor line which remains open but from Belfast Central.
