A Train Trip From Belfast To Bangor

I took the train to Bangor and took these pictures.

Note the excellent breakfast at The Heatherlea Cafe in Bangor.

Northern Ireland Railways seem to be improving the service along the Belfast to Bangor Line.

In England, an equivalent line would be Merseyrail’s service between Liverpool and Southport.

  • Both lines are important commuter and leisure routes.
  • Both serve important tourist destinations.
  • Both run along the water.
  • Both have a big city at one end and a properous town at the other.

The big difference is that Merseyrail’s line has a regular four trains per hour service and the Irish line doesn’t.

If ever a line was calling out for this level of service it is Belfast to Bangor.
