See J3474 : Site of former Queen's Quay station, Belfast. The station had been demolished and the site was being used as a car park. The other buildings (background) were the sheds used by Cawoods and Kellys who, along with the Co-op and Kingsberrys, imported coal through Queen’s Quay.
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.
