Dundonald station was on an embankment at the apex of the Old Dundonald Road (left) and the Comber Road. The station has gone but the trackbed is now part of the Comber Greenway J4273 : The Comber Greenway, Dundonald – marked by the conspicuous clump of trees. This view is towards Knock station J3873 : Former Knock station, Belfast (2008-1) and Queen’s Quay J3474 : Queen's Quay railway station. The Comber Road (foreground) was crossed by an underbridge. J4273 : Dundonald railway station (site of) (2) shows a similar view from the Greenway.
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.
