Coleraine railway station serves the town of Coleraine in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. It shares facilities with the town's Ulsterbus bus depot.

History

Coleraine Signal Cabin

The station was opened by the Ballymena, Ballymoney, Coleraine and Portrush Junction Railway on 4 December 1855 to designs by the architect Charles Lanyon. A similar range of buildings was provided on the east side of the tracks in the 1880s.

The shared train and bus station building has a distinctive rotunda with a high arched entrance, by GM Design Associates.[1]

A short distance from the station is a bascule bridge over the River Bann accommodating the railway over the river navigation.

Service

On weekdays, there is an hourly service operating to Great Victoria Street, with extra services at peak times, and some late night and early morning trains terminating here.
