The Airedale line links Leeds and Bradford to Shipley and stations to Skipton. It is among the busiest rail routes outside the south-east, carrying, along with the associated lines linking Leeds with Bradford Forster Square and Leeds and Bradford to Ilkley, over eleven million passengers a year. Our trains are almost exclusively formed of modern air-conditioned electric-powered Class 333 four-car units.


Details of Music Trains for 2016 will appear here when available.
