Ballina railway station
|Location||Station Road, Ballina, County Mayo, F26 EH76|
|Owned by||Iarnród Éireann|
|Operated by||Iarnród Éireann|
Ballina station opened on 19 May 1873. An extension of line to Killala opened on 2 January 1893. Although it carried passengers and freight, the extension was never profitable. It was closed to passengers services on October 1, 1931, and to goods on July 1, 1934. After the track was lifted, Ballina again became the line's terminus.
Ballina is a single platform station with a runaround loop. Ballina Freight yard is a major freight hub for Iarnród Éireann. Bulk (Timber) and Intermodal freight train movements go from the yard to Dublin and Waterford ports. The new rail spur recently opened in Dublin Port and rail line clearance to carry 9 ft 6 in high cube containers on standard floor wagons have increased the competitiveness of rail freight.
