The following information is taken from the Belfast & County Down Miniature Railway Society website at LinkExternal link .

"The Belfast and County Down Miniature Railway Society operates a 7 1/4” gauge railway called Drumawhey Junction, located at Four Road Ends on the Upper Gransha Road, midway between Bangor, Donaghadee and Newtownards in Northern Ireland. It was established in 1991 with the aim of building a miniature railway complete with locomotives, carriages and buildings for the pleasure of the members and the general public.

The BCDMRS is a cross-community organisation with a broad mix of people who help to develop the railway, build their own locomotives or just enjoy being part of a group of like-minded people. As one member puts it - “From my point of view, being a member of the Society is all about camaraderie. The camaraderie of being part of a team. A team requiring many skills..”

The Railway has an interesting track plan incorporating both a tunnel and a lattice steel bridge, which gives at least a 12-minute run of 1.5 km. or more. A signal box controls the turnouts, colour light and semaphore signals. The track is laid with steel rail and the turnouts were built by the members."
