SE1031 : Queensbury station

Queensbury station
Queensbury station
The triangular station at Queensbury was a strategic junction between lines serving Bradford, Halifax and Keighley. Services were so arranged that it was possible to make a connection without delay to another train. Very sadly this station and all of its lines to the three towns mentioned above, was closed in 1955. It never had the benefit of diesel trains, which could have transformed the economics. With hindsight from 2007, a valuable asset was thrown away back in 1955.
