Blackburn to Skipton Railway

Northern Lines

including Stubbins Junction to Accrington, the Padiham Loop and Barnoldswick branch

Published by Middleton Press

       The Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway had several routes that converged end on with the Midland Railway route from Skipton at Colne. The history of these lines is of course more complicated as the two large pre-grouping railway companies took over various lines whose promoting companies had been absorbed by ever larger railways. Once busy with freight and excursion traffic, as well as local passenger trains, many of these lines closed in the 1960s and 1970s but the Blackburn to Colne line has survived and the campaign to reopen the Colne to Skipton route continues. This volume looks at the stations, routes and traffic from the Victorian era to the present day.
