SE2503 : Penistone - Railway Station

taken 10 years ago, near to Penistone, Barnsley, Great Britain

Penistone - Railway Station
Penistone - Railway Station
Penistone’s two remaining platforms, where trains running between Huddersfield, Barnsley and Sheffield call, are sharply curved and the sounds of squealing and screeching of the wheels flanges against the inner edges of the rails must be heard for miles! This line was in fact only a branch line but it has survived the main line which branched off to the left at the point where this picture was taken. It is now known as the Penistone Line and was itself under closure threat for some time, a threat which thankfully has now passed.
