What a great photograph of the (un damaged) canopy at the entrance to the station.
Early recollections of travelling to higher education in Newry bring back very nostalgic memories of those days.
First year by train and then transferred to UTA buses.
On the first day travelling by bus and driven by a very new UTA driver (nameless) we entered the forecourt of the station on a double-decker bus...... and yes.... fortunately I was sitting towards the rear on top deck .... parts of the canopy disintegrated and thankfully no injuries.

( How times have changed , no collymodling by people in yellow hi vis uniforms , no counsellors to meet us when we arrived in school and ,yes , we DID survive.)

After school, pupils awaiting return buses home from The Mall (no 38) eagerly awaited those "renowned" bus drivers who were going to get us all back in record time.

What a race to the 'point,...... Mc Loughlin's Corner, Greenisland, Sharp's Corner and the notorious Eternity bend then the final push for finish at Warrenpoint.

These are happy memories

Great photos.2 or 3 of them I hadn't seen before.I'd say they were taken on a Sunday in summertime judjing by the amount of trains parked up in the sidings.Probably 1960/64.

Loved the way all the carriage doors
were left open like that.
Then the trains with the corridor
came into being.
Don't think they started at the Point
though.
Think maybe from Goraghwood to
Belfast/Dublin.

The corridor Carriages were on the Warrenpoint line an odd time,the were great when we were up and down to school in Newry.you could walk along the corridor and meet your mates wherever they we're.I seem to remember they were more comfortable than the usual carriages..I don't think they were intended for school use.

Oh yes they were more comfortable
than the carriages just off the platform.
I went to School in Newry from '57 -'59.
and never had the luxury of corridor
ones then.

10 pence seems to come to mind, for
what we had to pay going by train
to School.

We got it back.
Not sure if it was 1xmonth or once every
2 weeks.

Those taking the bus had tickets
supplied to them, so didn't have to
go through this procedure.

Photo No. 4. on 1st. page. I've just had it confirmed that the very tall man in the middle of the crowd
is my late Brother-in-Law Reg Longden who was married to my late eldest sister Myrtle.
The lady in the floral dress carrying a bag is I think my late cousin Mary Wray.

You can see the Station has closed down when this was taken,the front car park is deserted except for the Mini.you can see the weeds starting to take over,that wouldn't have happened if the Station was in use.the signals and signal box are still in place,so it must be quite soon after the station closed.an awful shame.
