Rail stop on track for new Titanic name

A railway halt in east Belfast has been officially renamed to mark the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic.

Bridge End station will now be known as Titanic Quarter station and has been announced just days before the opening of the flagship Titanic Signature building.

The station first opened in 1977 to serve Harland and Wolff shipyard, but later fell into disrepair.

Catherine Mason of Translink told the BBC: "There's been all the growth and development in terms of everything that's going on in the Titanic Quarter. It became obvious to make sure people knew that there was a train station close by."
