Bellarena Station

Bellarena in Derry is a station on the railway line between Coleraine and Derry.

In 2016, as part of an upgrade of the railway to Derry, a new station slightly to the east of the original station was built, along with a passing loop, to more evenly split the 33½ mile single track section between Coleraine and Derry. Prior to this, the crossing point had been at Castlerock, making it two single line sections of 5 ¾ miles and 27 ¾. This change made the sections 13 miles and 20 miles.

I have now updated the station page for the original station to note its closure and created a new page for the new 2016 station.
