SE1030 : Route of former Queensbury - Halifax railway

taken 9 years ago, near to Queensbury, Bradford, England

Route of former Queensbury - Halifax railway
Route of former Queensbury - Halifax railway
Queensbury was a triangular junction station with lines to Bradford, Keighley and Halifax (including a branch to St Paul's high level station). This is a view from the station site looking along the Halifax line, sixty years since the station closed in 1955 (although tracks were not lifted until 1966). See also SE1031 : Queensbury station taken in 1987, and LinkExternal link has much more detail on the history of the station.

As can be seen from this photo, the station was a long way below Queensbury village (some of whose houses appear on the ridge) and more convenient for railway operaitons than for passengers.
