The Belfast and County Down Railway mainline ran from Belfast to Newcastle via Comber and Downpatrick. It opened to Comber in 1850 and closed 100 years later. This bridge carried the North Road across the line. The section to Comber was double track. The view is towards Belfast. It is now a footpath known as the “Bloomfield Walkway”.
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.
