On the 7th September 1976, Bangor Goods Yard is seen from Convent Lane, during a period of inactivity. Move the mouse over the picture for more explanatory text.

Remarkably, traffic to the yard was about to increase considerably. The building of a Tunnel Cememt terminal meant, initially, more traffic for the trip freight services, and then the introduction of block freight train workings.

In 2003, only the former platform 4 and the adjacent siding remain in any sort of use. Some other sidings are still in situ, but unfit for traffic.
