In 1845 a new railway company, Dublin and Belfast Junction Railway (D&BJct), received royal assent for its Act to connect the Dublin and Drogheda Railway at Drogheda to the Ulster Railway at Portadown, thereby creating a rail link between Dublin and Belfast when the line was completed in 1852.

1875 The Northern Railway of Ireland was formed by a merger of the Dublin and Drogheda Railway with the Dublin and Belfast Junction Railway.
