Bowling Junction and Site of Station - DNT00230


Looking in the Halifax direction with the north portal of Bowling Tunnel all but hidden by smoke. The line in the centre continues to Bradford Exchange and the line going off to the left is the Bowling Curve to Laisterdyke where it joined the Bradford – Leeds ‘short line. Until it closed to passenger traffic in 1961 Manchester Victoria – Leeds expresses, amongst some other Leeds services, used it to by-pass Bradford. Below the signal gantry is the site of Bowling Station which opened in 1902 and closed in 1951.
