Heading north on the now-unclassified former B19

The second incarnation of the B19 was a short road in the north of County Londonderry. It was created when a previously unclassified road was given Class II status in the mid-1920s but was short-lived, having been declassified again by the late 1940s.

The road started on the original line of the A2 to the north of Eglinton and headed north along Station Road. The road crossed the flat land, with the hills of Donegal visible in the distance. After a few bends the largely straight road reached a level crossing on the Belfast to Derry railway line and ended here. An unclassified road then continued ahead towards the shore of Lough Foyle.

The B19 was presumably classified to serve Eglinton station, which was adjacent to the level crossing. The platforms still exist although the station is now closed, although curiously the B19 was declassified some years before.
