Riccarton Junction

The photographer's son, during a camping holiday with his father at Riccarton Junction on a late spring afternoon in 1966, savours a Leeds 'Peak' battling up the 1 in 75 towards Whitrope Summit with the daily Carlisle-Edinburgh service conveying through coaches from St Pancras. Riccarton North box - a more attractive structure than its surviving sister at Riccarton South see image 23830 - still survived despite having closed in April 1959.
