Hebden Bridge Railway Station.

Living nearby Hebden Bridge Station is one I have used many times and on this occasion was just passing through, so pictured only the westbound side. The station retains many of its original style and is probably the best looking station in use within the Calderdale region.

Opened in October 1840, the station was the end of the line until New Years Eve 1840 when the line was completed to Summit Tunnel, Walsden. Trains through the tunnel to Manchester were in operation from March 1841 when services ran from Leeds to Manchester through the station. Services to Halifax and Bradford commenced in 1852. The current station buildings were completed in 1893, and the station car park was the site of the station goods yard until 1966. During renovation in 1997 signage was installed in the colours of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway.

The station is manned and has toilets and ticket facilities, it also features a small café and has access to buses immediately outside the main entrance. There is disabled access to the Leeds bond platform but currently access to platform 1, trains towards Lancashire and Manchester is only accessible via steps. There are plans to reinstate the lifts between the platforms which have been out of use since the 1980's. The station has 3 Manchester bound trains per hour and 1 towards Preston from Platform 1. Platform 2 has 4 Leeds bound services per hour, 3 via Bradford Interchange and another through Dewsbury.

These pictures were taken on 5th August 2017 using a Nikon d3300 SLR. There are a total of 8 pictures with 6 viewable here and on Flickr and 2 exclusive to Clickasnap via the links below.
