Thread: Station for sale

    "Overlooking it all is the signal cabin, the last one standing belonging to the old railway line...."

    Nope - Ballynoe (just about), Killough and Tullymurry BCDR cabins still remain. The signal on the platform is an ex-NCC somersault, brought to the station by the long-time owner Mr. James Black who was an NCC employee, originally from Castledawson I think. I visited him and and his wife at Saintfield on many occasions.

    Is it a somersault? I thought it was an ordinary one..... but BCDR original and original location it isn't!

    Yes, the other two cabins seem to have been overlooked! I suppose, if they mean still with levers, that might be the basis of their claim....

    Never argue with an idiot. He will bring you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

    I thought it was the practice to strip a closed station of anything that could possibly be re-used or sold, esp. signalling gear, apart from a few anomalies, i.e. 'mothballed' lines or places still in railway ownership?
