Bradford Exchange Station - DNT00219


A terminus station seen here after the introduction of DMUs so probably about 1960. The first station on the site was built in 1850 and operated by the L&YR but the impressive double vaulted train shed seen here dates from 1888 when the station was rebuilt to accommodate both the L&YR and the GNR. There were 10 platforms, five for the L&YR and five for the GNR. The station was demolished in 1972 and replaced some 50 metres to the south with an integrated bus/rail interchange. The main services today are between Leeds and Manchester Victoria with York and Blackpool North plus a Grand Central London service.
