The station had previously been a block post with passing loop (D0605 : Steam train at Cullybackey station (July 1974). The somersault signal remained to protect the crossing which was subsequently converted to automatic half-barriers as seen in D0605 : Site of Cullybackey Signal Box (January 1996).
