Larne Harbour railway station, Larne, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, serves the ferry port for ferries to Cairnryan and Troon, Scotland and Fleetwood, England.
The station co-exists with the passenger terminus for P&O Irish Sea ferries offering simple integration for foot passengers. However, this situation is not mirrored at the two Scottish termini of Cairnryan and Troon.
The station was opened on 1 October 1862.
On the 11/11/2012 the station received platform extension work to facilitate 6-Car trains.

Famous quotes containing the words station, railway and/or harbour:
“How soon country people forget. When they fall in love with a city it is forever, and it is like forever. As though there never was a time when they didnt love it. The minute they arrive at the train station or get off the ferry and glimpse the wide streets and the wasteful lamps lighting them, they know they are born for it. There, in a city, they are not so much new as themselves: their stronger, riskier selves.”
—Toni Morrison (b. 1931)
“Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understandmy mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arms length.”
—Angela Carter (19401992)
“Patience, the beggars virtue, Shall find no harbour here.”
—Philip Massinger (15831640)
