Following my last blog about the Belfast County Down Railway I began to take an interest in the vestiges that remain of the railway link to Ballygowan. Ballygowan is a small town that is not on any main arterial road route, it has essentially become a commuter town serving Belfast. As a result it has remained a small town and has only relatively recently started to expand.
Despite that fact that the railway line closed in 1950 there is still evidence around pointing to its past connection with the Belfast County Down Railway. The following photographs point to this past. All the locations photographed are within a one minute walk from each other. Having lived here for the past twenty seven years I often think how wonderful it would be to have the railway link restored. However this will never happen!
