Description

Londonderry Railway Station, known commonly as Waterside Railway Station, is a railway terminus in the city of Derry in Northern Ireland, on the east bank of the River Foyle. The station is also used by residents of the west of County Londonderry, much of west Tyrone and County Donegal. It is operated by Northern Ireland Railways. It serves the line to Belfast, whose other terminus is Great Victoria Street.The original Londonderry Waterside Station was opened on 29 December 1852 by Steven Alfred John Campbell, a well-known banker of the time. It closed on 24 March 1980, but the station building remains intact. A new station of the same name replaced the larger terminus in 1980, after services were reduced and track layout was severely rationalised. The line consisted of a single jointed track with loops at Castlerock and Coleraine stations.Since the inaugural UK City of Culture in 2013 the railway line was upgraded with a track relay and planned passing loops to be installed The station signs now read Londonderry, as the suffix Waterside became redundant upon closure of the city's two other railway termini. Despite the nameboard inscriptions, the destination signs on Northern Ireland Railways trains read Derry/Londonderry.
