Train Station


The station was opened on 12 August 1839 by the Ulster Railway. The station buildings were rebuilt in 1878, designed by William Henry Mills, for the then newly formed Great Northern Railway of Ireland (GNRI). (Source: Wikipedia)

The yellow brick is more uncommon as redbrick was used in the majority of other stations around the country.




In the photo below you can make out the GNR letters in wrought iron for Great Northern Railroad.
(All that wire is to preventing pigeons from roosting)


Summer flower baskets brighten the platforms.

  16. I have never seen a more artistic and pretty train station! The little scallops on the roof edge, yellow brick, the decoration on the peak of the roof. It is all so charming. And the beautiful flowers are the finishing touch. Have you ever been there to ride a train?
