To show how ridiculous the "Missing Link" is between the Railways of Yorkshire and the Railways of Lancashire we ran a train from Skipton to Colne, the first for 38 years. When the railway is reinstated it will be just 11 miles, take 15 minutes and cost maybe £3 for a standard single. But our hired train had to go the only way currently available to passengers, via Leeds, 100 miles and 2hrs 30 minutes. Travel by a scheduled service and it will take another hour on top of that, 3hrs 30 mins and set you back £23 for a standard single. If you too think this mad, please help us by clicking on the SELRAP box on the right of my home page and then clicking 'Sign Petition'
