Who caught the train to school?

There have been several posts about travelling to school by bus, but lads who lived in Queensbury, and no-doubt those who lived in Denholme and Cullingworth could have caught the train.

The following link should take you to the 'Summer Timetable for 1950' of the Keighley-Bradford Exchange via Queensbury service if anyone is interested:

Re: Who caught the train to school?

There was one youth in my class - who's name is lost in the mists of antiquity - that caught the train to Gargrave. I recall he left classes 10 minutes early to do so.
