NI Railways announces earlier Saturday morning train from Newry to Belfast

Translink has announced an earlier Saturday morning train from Newry to Belfast.

The NI Railways service will depart Newry at 7.05am on Saturdays, from December 15th.

Translink’s Director of Service Operations (acting), Ian Campbell said: “We have listened to our passengers who requested an earlier arrival into Belfast on Saturday mornings.

“From Saturday December 15th, the 7.05am departure from Newry will arrive in Belfast at just after 8.00am.  This train will call at all stops between Newry and Lisburn and will then run express to Belfast’s Great Victoria Street station. This will operate instead of the 7.50am departure from Newry”.

Ian concluded: “Coupled with our Goldline 238 service from Newry to Belfast, we offer choice and flexibility to our customers”.
