Old railway wall, Dromore
Old railway wall, Dromore
An old wall at Church Street behind which lay Dromore station (closed in 1956). The station building remains (in other use) at middle left. The line came from the Hillsborough direction J2053 : Old railway near Dromore and continued (left) towards the viaduct J1953 : Dromore viaduct (1980-1) and Banbridge J1246 : Old railway bridge, Banbridge (3), after crossing the street by an overbridge. Although smaller than Banbridge, Dromore reputedly generated more passengers. On the other hand, Banbridge, with its many linen mills and larger agricultural hinterland, generated more goods. The remains of the course of the line can be seen in the Google satellite photograph LinkExternal link . Best understood by looking at the 25 map (edition 3).
