Former Ballygowan railway station :: Shared Description


Ballygowan was a rural station, between Comber and Saintfield, on the Belfast and County Down Railway from Belfast Queen’s Quay to Downpatrick and Newcastle. It opened in 1858 and closed (with the rest of the line) in 1950. Although a block post with a loop, the station had only one platform on the down side. There was a level crossing at the Comber end. The goods store (Saintfield end) was added in 1898. Now an Ulsterbus depot. For the record the grid line passes through the former goods store.
