Halifax West Yorkshire 24th April 2014

Not far from Halifax Minster, architecture of a different nature. The complex Victorian steelwork of the 1855 ex-Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway station roof is seen from the top of the stairs down to platforms 1 & 2.

Ravensthorpe West Yorkshire 15th November 2021

Up the Junction. In the darkness at 07.05 an unidentified TransPennine Express Class 185 diesel multiple unit takes 2J51, the 06.49 Huddersfield to Leeds service, off the ex-Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Calder Valley route at LNW Junction. It will shortly pass through Ravensthorpe station en route to Batley & Leeds. The London & North Western Railway disappeared almost a 100 years ago but the junction still carries its abbreviated name!

A side view of Huddersfield's 1847 station building and 1880s train shed (on the left) taken from the top of St George's Street just off Westgate. With no modern traffic to date it this street view could be from the 1950s-60s.

A few lines from Doncaster, Yorkshire 29th August 1976

A 1970s North Bridge trackscape. A telephoto shot of Doncaster station's north end prior to electrification & resignalling of the ECML. I have a postcard bought at the station in the late 1960s with a similar picture to this but from the southern approach. Written across the picture is the caption "A Few Lines from Doncaster". Despite being bought at least 3 years after steam finished there are steam engines in view. I suspect that similar postcards could be bought in many other towns with "A Few Lines from X" as captions.
