Railtour, Ballymena (1983)
A two-car “80” class set (740,86), working an Irish Railway Record Society railtour from Belfast Central to Londonderry and back, pausing at Ballymena for photographs. The face on the right of the island platform was originally used by the narrow (3ft) gauge trains to Larne and Red Bay. Much of the area and the former yard is now the park and ride car park.
