The Rishworth Branch Line December 2013
One of my favourite places to explore with my camera I have previously posted on the Rishworth Branch a few times, including much about the history of the line. Today i'm going to miss a recap as that information is still available to see on my earlier blog post's. I have recently re-looked at the pictures I took whilst walking the line in December 2013 and had a bit of a re-edit, all the pictures taken that day are now sepia. The pictures were taken using a Samsung Galaxy Tablet and can be seen below or on Clickasnap where they are un-watermarked and full resolution.
These first set of pictures were taken on the stretch of line from Scar Head Tunnel to the site of Triangle Station.

|The former site of Triangle Station|
|The former Ripponden station used to sit at the top of the abutment.|
|The former trackbed through this section was so wet on the day I was there it resembled a canal rather than the former trackbed of a railway.|
|The former Rishworth station platform still remained, although largely reclaimed by nature, when I visited it had been 60 years since it had seen a train and 84 since a passenger had waited on it stone concourse.|
Thanks for looking and please take a moment to share, all the pictures remain the copyright of Colin Green.
