Low Moor railway station
The original station at Low Moor, south of Bradford, was opened on 9 July 1848 by the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway. It was a junction station where the lines to Cleckheaton, Mirfield and Dewsbury left the Bradford to Manchester line. The platforms were east of the Cleckheaton Road bridge and closed on 14 June 1965. Little trace of that station and its ancillary buildings now remains, other than one listed warehouse.

The site of the former sidings to the south of the main line was used briefly from July 1995 to October 1997 for Transperience - a transport museum (mainly trams).

A new Low Moor station was opened on Sunday 2 April 2017 by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, and consists of a pair of platforms on the west side of Cleckheaton Road, with a large car park off New Works Road to the north on the site of former sidings.

The initial service consisted mostly of Northern's hourly local train in each direction on the Leeds-Bradford-Huddersfield route, plus occasional stops by Grand Central trains from Bradford to London.
