Middleton Railway – Leeds

The Middleton railway commenced back in 1758 and introduced steam locomotives in 1812 as a line moving coal from an open pit down to the city of Leeds. Today the railway operates a regular passenger service from a recently constructed office, depot, station and museum complex at Moor Road close to the M621 motorway in south Leeds up to a park beyond a sports centre. At a visit in spring 2014, the railway’s shop was stocking a few postcards produced some years ago by the railway.
