That is fascinating Phill. The fastest journey I spotted on a quick look was the 2 3 (Saturday Only) from Penda's Way that arrives in Leeds at 2 12, thus 9 minutes! I guess it did not stop at Crossgates and Osmondthorpe, but perhaps it still did. No Second Class in those days just First and plebs (sorry Third Class) except for the workmen's tickets.As a child in the late 1940's to very early 1950's I recall (though vaguely now) using Osmondthorpe Station.

That should be spot on where the station stood in today's world. The footpath to the station is marked in grey.   https://ec.yimg.com/ec?url=https%3A%2F% ... x1ywIw--~B

I llived at 101 Pendas Way in 1960's; about 100 yards past the shops going towards Barwick Road. The station was almost directly opposite. Although the tracks had been removed, the route was still there.

There's nothing like keeping the past alive - it makes us relieved to reflect that any bad times have gone, and happy to relive all the joyful and fascinating experiences of our own and other folks' earlier days.

It's many years since I saw what remains of the line. I shall be in Leeds next week and try to make time to visit it again. I have lived in Copmanthorpe (York) and now in Tadcaster and both have had railway stations that are now defunct.

I've just seen a sort of 3D simulation of the railway between Crossgates and Wetherby, I have to say I'm suitably impressed.The aerial view of Pendas station as it was can be seen herehttp://tinyurl.com/bnd4f33The rest of this line is in this set herehttp://tinyurl.com/bs7o3t2

They cannot have been easy to produce. Well worth looking through all of the set.PS I like the 'Scarcroft lane bridge 181211. Phill.D has taken a view of this bridge!'. That bridge and its deep cutting is well worth a visit. It is a bit wet in parts at the Bardsey side of the old rail track and progress on the Thorner side of the bridge is however blocked, or it was when I was last there a year or two back).
