Apperley Bridge finally opens

333013 at Apperley Bridge with the 0831 Leeds-Bradford Forster Square. MIKE HADDON.

Poor light and mist hampered the successful photographic recording of the first train to call at the new Apperley Bridge station on the morning on December 13.

The historic occasion can just about be seen here, with Northern Rail's 333013, forming the slightly late running 0842 to Bradford Foster Square (ex Leeds at 0831), about to depart from the station’s staggered westbound platform. The previous station at this location closed on March 29 1965.

    Not to mention Cranbrook railway station in East Devon near Exeter is also opened as its the newest station to the new town of Cranbrook which is near to Exeter Airport and the M5 motorway.

      But yes it's good to see Apperley Bridge railway station to be reopened on the Leeds-Bradford Foster Square line which is operated by Northern Rail which will be part of Arriva from next year.

    Plus the new railway station could also serve not just Apperley Bridge but also villages near by to the new railway station in West Yorkshire. It's good to see the new railway station to be reopened and to remain open forever. The Beeching Axe ruined most of the U.K's railway infrastructure and with Maldon in Essex not having a railway stations and Southminster which is the nearest railway station to Maldon and even Chelmsford, Hatfield Peveral and Witham are also the nearest railway stations for Maldon. But for Apperley Bridge. It's nice to see that the town has got its railway station back.
