Hornbeam Railway Station, Harrogate, 1999
The original railway line from York and Wetherby swung to the left (about where the pine tree is located at centre-right of photograph) and entered a tunnel, the 'Harrogate Tunnel', then into a cutting to arrive at Brunswick Station, the terminus for Harrogate. That station was located about where Trinity Church now stands on the edge of The Stray and it opened in 1848.

Later and after much opposition to all the smoke and noise a train would generate, the railway company obtained permission for a line to cross The Stray in a cutting to a new station in what was becoming the centre of Harrogate. Thus, the route seen in the photograph was created and the new station replaced Brunswick Station in 1862. Harrogate Tunnel was boarded up but still remains beneath Langcliffe Avenue; it was a potential Air Raid Shelter in the Second World War.
