Clock, Newcastle
The railway to Newcastle closed in 1955. The old station continued in use as a bus station until the 1990s. It is now a supermarket. This is the clock tower (with the clock still working).
The Belfast and County Down Railway



The Belfast and County Down Railway ran from Queens 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.
