Low Moor Railway Station, Bradford

Low Moor Railway Station is a new station on the Caldervale line between Bradford and Halifax, West Yorkshire. Opened in April 2017 at a cost of £10.8 million pounds the station serves the villages of Low Moor and Oakenshaw and it's location close to the M62 and M606 motorways see's it promoted as a park and ride station.

The station has limited facilities with a small shelters of both platforms, there are card only ticket machines that mean tickets must be purchased prior to travel. The station is unmanned and has no refreshments, toilets or cash machines available. Access to the platforms is via steps or lift. The station was used by 133600 passengers in 2017 - 18 or approx. 2570 per week, and this figure will only continue to grow as recent timetable changes mean more stops at the station. 

The first station at Low Moor was opened at the same location in July 1848, and it's early years saw the station very busy as it was the terminus for both the line from Halifax and the Spen Valley line which ran through Heckmondwike, Liversedge and Cleckheaton. The line through to Bradford not complete until 1850. The station remained busy until the 1960's when it was marked for closure along with the Spen Valley route by the infamous Dr Beeching, with closure arriving on the 14th June 1965 to passengers with goods traffic withdrawn 2 years later.

The set of 15 pictures were taken on the December 30th 2019 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. They can be seen here and on Flickr with selected ones also available to view on Clickasnap. Sadly due to recently becoming aware of 6 occasions where people have taken my pictures and claimed them as there own in other groups ETC, I have now started to tag each picture with my name, I am aware that it may not solve the problem but it may encourage people to credit me as the photographer. All I ask of anyone if they copy or share my pictures is they credit them to me.
