Entrance to Forster Square station
Entrance to Forster Square station
This is the entrance to the "new" station developed in the 1990s, a few hundred metres further out of the city centre than the old station.
Bradford Forster Square station
The original northern station in Bradford was built in the 1840s and by 1853 was owned by the Midland Railway and called Market street; from 1924 it took the name Forster Square. In 1990 this ornate station was replaced by a smaller, simpler one of the same name a few hundred metres further north (i.e. away from the city centre). Services from Leeds and Skipton were electrified in 1994, and improved with new rolling stock and more frequent services when Leeds central station was rebuilt in 2001.
