THORNER STATION

THORNER.

 

The North Eastern Railway opened a single-track from Cross Gates to Wetherby

in 1876. The track was doubled in 1902. There were four stations on the

route: Scholes, Thorner, Bardsey and Collingham Bridge. All were opened on

1st May 1876 and closed on 6th January 1964, although Scholes remained open

a few months longer for goods traffic. Marked similarities existed between

all four stations. This is not surprising, considering they were opened

together and served villages on the same line.
