The Train Trip, Sowerby Bridge to Mytholmroyd.

A short video I recently did of the view outside the window as I took a train journey from Sowerby Bridge to Mytholmroyd. The trip was taken on New Years Eve 2018 at about 11.15am so the train wasn't overly busy. I didn't intend on filming it but as it was on the tripod already, I thought why not and set it going. I filmed it on my Nikon d3300 SLR.

The journey starts at Sowerby Bridge Railway Station Platform 1 and heads west firstly past County Bridge, Town Hall Clock and the River Calder. After this we passed Goodalls Transport which is built on part of the site of the former goods yard and near to where the original Sowerby Bridge Railway Station was sited until moving to it's current location in 1876. The train then enters Cemetery Tunnel, which is also known as Sowerby Tunnel or locally as Dixy Tunnel. The tunnel runs under Dixon Scar Woods and Sowerby Bridge Cemetery. I trimmed the tunnel section of the video to a few seconds as we were in the tunnel for a minute.

Once through the tunnel, the open country becomes visible as the train heads towards the Tenterfields area of Sowerby Bridge, a mill complex converted to business units. After this is the former VTL works now a caravan storage area which forms part of Fairlea Mills, with a little bit further the area that was Luddendenfoot Railway Station, which also is now Station Road Industrial Units.

After passing Luddendenfoot, once again the countryside becomes more prominent until passing the small hamlet of Brearley, which is home to a few houses and industrial units. Not overly visible from the train. Before reaching Mytholmroyd, Moderna Business Park becomes visible through the trees and St Michaels Church is Visible just before I had to get up to leave the train.

It features a number of videos like this, as well as photo slideshows I have done.
