Ballinderry railway station served Upper Ballinderry in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is currently closed to passengers.

The station was built for the Dublin and Antrim Junction Railway and opened on 13 November 1871.[1] Translink withdrew passenger services from the line when it reopened the more direct Belfast CentralAntrim route via Bleach Green. Translink stated that it was unable to maintain two routes to Antrim and after operating a skeleton service on the route announced that it would be mothballed. The line could be revived under plans to operate a Belfast – Lisburn – Antrim – Belfast circular route.[citation needed]

Recently Northern Ireland Railways removed the passing loop here and it also removed the one at Crumlin to make the line a long siding.[citation needed]
