Bring out your snaps!

We are always looking for old photos of Mytholmroyd and station for our posterboards on the platforms – makes the wait for trains that much more interesting.

So, if you woud like to see them on this site and on the station please send them to

myt.station@btinternet.com

Just went for the 10.05 to Sowerby Bridge and found MYT station crowded – apparently a steamer was running 30 minutes late.

Never one to miss a snap – hope you like it.

The booked steam locomotive was Stanier Pacific 6210Princess Elizabeth. 

and here it is – spot-on-time.

(Understand it was 5′ early on the return journey….!)
