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:

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.

I remember a sometime class mate who left early to catch the 4.01? Jim Nuttall? Heading for Barlick.

Re: Who caught the train to school?

It could have been Barnoldswick but the name Nutall doesn't ring any bells and in any case it seems you were a couple of years ahead of me so he wouldn't have been in my class anyway.

Re: Who caught the train to school?

It was Barnoldswick and I reckoned someone would recognize it as such. Interesting etymology as with all words, particularly of common nouns. I am disappointed that no one I knew seems to be posting except Nobby Dore and Neville? Lumbers occaisonally in the past.

Re: Who caught the train to school?

We had a couple of lads in the A Form who came to school by train . They were from Cullingworth and Queensbury . As I remember they were Shuttleworth and Hodgson . That was on the G N line up the hill on the left going to Haworth and through tunnels and across the Viaduct at Cullinworth .
