    You visited my home area, Skipton & Ilkley. About 11 miles apart, but have to go via Shipley to travel between the 2 by train. Excellent range of pics.

    Naughty naughty, travelling to Skipton on a WYPTE Day Rover ;) Grippage is sporadic on the Aire Valley line beyond Keighley, so it's usually safe enough.

    Nice pictures though, especially the milepost at (I guess) Ilkley.

    All day, every day. Mostly coal from Scotland to the Yorkshire power stations, which seems to produce a train about every 2 hours. There's also stone coming out of Swinden Quarry near Grassington on a much more sporadic basis. Closer to Leeds scrap is tripped out of Crossley Evans' yard just south of Shipley station, I guess to Healey Mills.
