Not so good at the station at the moment

We are not having a good start to the year on Mytholmroyd station.

The electrics are not working and the following has been received this evening

NFM00001101 – CIS,TVM, PA on station are not working all not working  This is a power issue caused by flooding in underground track crossing.

*this has been passed over to network rail to attend because we (Contractors) are unable to access the problem area. below is the report from our electrician*

 Report – electrical cable fault as tech advised who has attended 11/04/16

** The CIS kiosk is tripping out there is a cable fault between the Station DB under the bridge and CIS kiosk the cable turns under the platform and we don`t have access. This needs passing back to Network Rail OPHD.***.

There is the possibility of having to have a total line possession before work can commence on the tracks.

Tees Rail painting us all over

Not only are we the volunteers sprucing up the village railway station – but contractors, Tees Rail are giving it a good painting.

A bit like the Forth Bridge, but Kevin and mates are doing a smashing job.

 

Car Parking

We have been waiting for years – re-surfacing of the station approach road is in sight.

Whilst we do not have an official car park at the station, the approach road has been very useful for those with mobility problems. 

 

Mytholmroyd is the only station in the Upper Calder valley that is practical for step-free access between parked cars/taxis and the station platforms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Station Partnership members reported more wheelchair-users coming from Todmorden (and beyond) to gain access to the trains here at t’Royd.
