Stranocum railway station
|Original company||Ballycastle Railway|
|18 October 1880||Station opens|
|3 July 1950||Station closes|
Under the terms of the Transport Act 1947 the London, Midland and Scottish Railway, the Northern Counties Committee parent company, was nationalised by the British Government on 1 January 1948. The Northern Counties Committee (and the Ballycastle Railway) was thus briefly owned by the British Transport Commission. This was only a temporary measure and in 1949 the NCC was transferred to the Ulster Transport Authority (UTA) – owned by the Government of Northern Ireland.
The station closed to passengers on 3 July 1950.
