Mossley West railway station is located in the townland of Ballyhenry in the north of Newtownabbey, County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

In 2008 the station was refurbished as part of a £17 million investment package by NI Railways to improve access for disabled passengers and provide better lighting, signage and seating.

Whiteabbey is technically the next stop on the line, however two services each way stop here in accordance with the current timetable. At other times, trains only call at Yorkgate prior to Belfast Central, hence missing out Whiteabbey.

Service[edit]

On Mondays to Saturdays, there is an hourly service to Great Victoria Street. In the other direction, trains alternate every hour between a service to Londonderry Waterside, and a service to Coleraine or Portrush.

Only seven trains run each way on Sundays on a two-hourly basis. All services are between Londonderry Waterside and Great Victoria Street, except for the last outbound train of the evening, which terminates at Coleraine.
