Poyntzpass NIR Halt

Poyntzpass is a small village sitting on the border between Co.Armagh and Co.Down, Northern Ireland. More importantly, it straddles two lines of transport, the old Newry Canal, now defunct, and the main Northern Ireland Railways line between Belfast and Dublin. A level crossing unites the two parts of the village, and there is a small unmanned station.

But it was the historic signal box, now out of use of course, which attracted my attention as I drove through the village. I couldn’t resist stopping for a couple of quick shots – time was pressing, so it was literally, just a few minutes…
