The daytime service frequency of 3 trains per hour south of Sowerby Bridge towards Manchester is about right. Of these 3, 1is fast calling at important stations only, 1 is semi fast and one is slow.

Bradford is of course served by the Blackpool and Huddersfield trains as well, so overall everything is covered. The problems occur in the morning peaks and evenings.

In the morning peaks all trains towards Manchester stop at all stations. Now they were busy before, but with the closure of the Oldham Loop these trains are now grossly overcrowded beyond Rochdale. This not only creates longer and more unpleasant journeys for those travelling from further afield, but due to the inconsistency in rolling stock provision it means that those passengers from Castleton, Mills Hill and Moston may or may not fit on the train depending what stock is provided.

Now in the evening the service is appaling. During the day, 3 trains per hour whisk people into Manchester to go to work, shopping, shows etc. After they obviously assume no one wants to travel as the service drops to hourly stopping at all stations. This means that a nice 30 minute sprint from Hebden Bridge into Manchester during the day, then becomes a 50 minute crawl home on a train that without fail will be rammed to bursting, at least as far as Rochdale.

Journeys up to Halifax and Bradford take even longer, and it would probably be quicker to walk. The service pattern should be at least 2 trains per hour all day from start to end of service. One fast and one semi fast service should be provided during the peaks, with additional stopping trains running short at each end of the line. Daytime could stay as now, with evenings seeing one slow and one semi fast service.

This would make the service far more useable and attractive. And as usual, some better attempts at revenue protection would no doubt increase recorded ridership and takings overnight.

As I write this I am shoehorned into a 2 car which had plenty of space prior to Rochdale, but is now full to bursting with people right the way down the middle of the coach.

And we still have 3 more stations to stop at yet!

Caldervale Line-what for the future?

Manchester Oxford Road On 28 February a Wakefield to Rose Grove goods train broke into two due to a broken coupling, resulting in the rear half eventually crashing at high speed into the front half in Millwood Tunnel. No one was killed but wreckage filled the tunnel right up to the roof. Blackpool route[ edit ] Trains continue up the Calder valley to Burnley and Blackburn ; it also runs parallel with the Leeds and Liverpool Canal from Burnley. The Rose Grove—Todmorden Hall Royd local service over this route ended in , the only passenger services thereafter being a daily Leeds—Blackpool train. In mid the last tanker train travelled over the line, with the expectation of closure shortly after. The Society arranged for a Preston—Bradford Interchange train to be run to move staff from their home base to Bradford offices. In October British Rail developed this into five trains each way between Leeds and Preston with one extended to Blackpool.

An alternative route was instead put forward, and it was stated that, if funds could be obtained by early to carry forward the project, the curve could be back in use by the end of In mid the last tanker train travelled over the line, with the expectation of closure shortly after. I apologise for opening wide this particular can of worms. East Leeds Parkway Proposed. Reinstating the curve was a priority for Lancashire County Council and was ranked as the most important project in its Rail Improvement Schemes draft report. It is the slower of the two main rail routes between Leeds and Manchester the other being the Huddersfield lineand the northernmost of the three main trans-Pennine routes.
