Site Description

CCTV Level Crossing. There was a station here with a single platform on the Up side on the Derry side of the crossing until 1976. What appears to be the former signal cabin as an integral part of the building at the Derry end of the station is a later addition of non railway vintage. What must have been the shortest lived branch in Irish railway history, that to Magilligan Point, diverged on the Up side at the Derry end of the station. It was in use from July to October, 1855! Binevenagh Mountain is visible on the Down side for the next two miles.
