Bramley railway station serves the suburb of Bramley, Leeds, England. It lies on the Calder Valley line 4 miles (6 km) west from Leeds.

History

The original station in 1961

The original station was opened by the Leeds, Bradford and Halifax Junction Railway on 1 August 1854.[1] This was closed by British Railways on 4 July 1966,[1] the last trains having called on 2 July. The station had platforms opposite each other and were connected by a footbridge.

The present station off Stanningley Road opened on 12 September 1983[1] by Metro (West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive) and British Rail. The station's two wooden platforms are staggered.

The station is unmanned and has a ticket machine on platform 2 as of spring 2019. There are shelters and passenger information screens on each platform, along with a system to provide train running information. Though there are ramps to each platform, disabled access to platform 2 is restricted by the path being narrow and opening out onto a busy main road.[2]

Services

Monday to Saturday daytimes, three trains per hour head eastbound towards Leeds, with one continuing to Selby and Hull. Westbound the frequency is similar, with trains heading to Bradford Interchange and Halifax. Two of three go beyond Halifax to Manchester Victoria, whilst the third terminates there (passengers for Brighouse and Huddersfield now need to change trains at Bradford Interchange on weekdays). One Manchester service now runs through to Chester via Warrington Bank Quay since the May 2019 timetable update.[3]

There is an additional 4th [train per hour] that runs Mon-Fri eastbound, just before 8am, which is operated by Grand Central on behalf of Northern - as such, tickets cannot be purchased on this service.

On Sundays there are two trains per hour towards Leeds and to Bradford Interchange. One westbound service runs through to Manchester and the other runs to Huddersfield.[4]

The Northern service to Preston passes through Bramley but does not stop there.
