Brighouse Railway Station, West Yorkshire. (August 2018)

This set of pictures was taken in August 2018 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. The pictures below are taken from my Flickr photo stream, there are an additional 2 available from this set also on Clickasnap via the links below.

Brighouse Railway Station was originally opened on the 5th October 1840 as Brighouse and Bradford. Upon opening there was no trains in to Bradford until the line via Halifax opened in 1854, the station was also known as Brighouse for Rastrick. The original station was closed on the 3rd January 1970 when the 6.53pm London King Cross to Bradford passed through and demolished shortly after. The station was reopened at it's original location on the 29th May 2000, nearby Elland was supposed to have a new station open at the same time, this is now expected to be 2022 at the earliest with an estimated cost of £22 million. Only 22 years late, kind of reminds you of the old British rail, we may be late but we get there eventually.
