The starting point for this sentimental journey in the 1960s is the imposing terminus station at Bradford Exchange ​​with its magnificent twin-arched roof spanning 10 platforms built for the joint use of the L&YR and GNR.

Featured in this latest book are the ex-L&YR Halifax line via Bowling and Low Moor to Wyke, the former GNR lines towards Leeds and Wakefield via Laisterdyke, Dudley Hill, Birkenshaw and Drighlington, and the Laisterdyke to Idle and Shipley & Windhill branch. The book concludes with a journey to Thornton and Keighley via St. Dunstan’s and Queensbury.
 
The decline of Bradford’s railways is, in many ways, a reflection of the more general economic downturn seen in the city during the last half century. The purpose of the book is to present a nostalgic look back to a time, not so long ago, when things were much different.
 
The vast majority of the colour images contained in this book have never been published before and embrace a variety of locations which have been wiped from the railway map.

Vol1: The Bradford & Thornton Railway 

In the Victorian era, local railways up and down the country were an essential means of transport for raw materials, goods and people. Sadly, many of these lines have disappeared, almost without trace.

Among those to fall victim was the former GNR line from Bradford to Thornton. Now, for the first time in full colour, Willowherb Publishing is pleased to present a unique collection of images depicting this long lost route.
