Newry is a through and terminal station in the former Newry Zone. It is served by Waterline services to Newry Harbour, Connolly, James Street and Greenslade; and Stepford Express services to Newry Harbour, Leighton City and Llyn-by-the-Sea.

Newry's platform allocation is unique, as Waterline trains can terminate in any platform and Stepford Express trains can only terminate in Platform 2-3. Newry Harbour-bound trains can only use Platform 3 though. There is also unused passing tracks between Platform 2 and 3, reserved for possible future Waterline and Stepford Express routes and the "Return to depot" feature.

Trivia

  • Before V1.9, Newry was one of the two stations to have platforms divided by letters. The only station to still have this trait is Morganstown. Benton also used to have lettered platforms, but they were removed when the station was remodeled in V1.7.
  • Before V1.9, trains at Platform 2B couldn't depart until a Waterline service from Newry Harbour arrived on Platform 1, due to the fact that the stretch between Newry Harbour and Newry is single-tracked. However, such a situation rarely occurred as very few drivers chose to drive R012, the only service calling at Newry Harbour at the time.
  • In one of BanTech's livestreams, the developers said that there is a possibility for a Newry Depot. However, a siding was materialised instead of a depot.
  • This was one of the only three stations that was still using old banner repeaters along with St Helens Bridge and Bodin. But in V1.4.1, the banner repeaters have been replaced.
  • There is a station in real life with the same name in Northern Ireland.
  • This station has step-free access.
  • Before The Big Update, a sign at the entrance of the station stated that services went to 'Rose Dale Head', which later became Connolly. Some have predicted that a station in the James Street Extension may take that name, similar to how Beechley took City Hospital's old name and Willowfield took Financial Quarter's old name, but that has never been confirmed.
  • In V1.8.0, there was a bug where trains could not close doors at Platforms 2A and 2B, making Newry Harbour inaccessible unless the train skipped Newry.
    • Platforms 1 and 3 still worked as intended and doors could be closed.
    • Platform allocation was also changed in that version, making the train have a chance to enter either Platform 2A or 3. Therefore, drivers have a chance to not be able to continue or change their route.
    • The same bug also happened at Morganstown Platform 5A and 5B.
    • However, the bug could be temporarily circumvented if the train has a Guard.
    • The bug was fixed in V1.8.1.
  • On 1 May 2022, Managing Director Charlie_RBX published a sneak peek of an overhauled Newry, due to release in a future major update. Even though the station's name was not confirmed at the time, the community highly speculated this station to be Newry.
    • Some have also suspected the sneak peek is James Street instead, but the commercial buildings shown in the background are located near Newry which made this less likely to be true.
    • Later, a second sneak peek was released on 12 May 2022, which revealed that Stepford Express will be stopping and going to Newry and Newry Harbour. Furthermore, this also confirmed that the previous sneak peek is Newry (due to OFF indicators showing it is between "Harbour" and "Eden Quay"). This also explains the passing tracks in the previous sneak peek.
    • This station is based off Newbury station.
    • The sneak peeked station was confirmed to be Newry in V1.9.
    • Though the passing tracks are unused as of V1.9, possibly reserved for use in future updates.
