Penistone Station South Yorkshire 2006

The telephoto effect makes the curves over the viaduct on the Lancashire & Yorkshire line from Huddersfield & into the station even more severe than they are. This dmu squealed its way in, picked up quite a few passengers and squealed away eastwards to Barnsley.

 

This line was only a branch off the Great Central Railway main line Woodhead route until 1981 but now is the only railway in Penistone. The remains of the GCR line a just visible beneath the foliage.
