Remains of the Colne and Trawden Light Railway


Colne, United Kingdom (GB)
The Colne and Trawden Light Railway was a tramway that operated between Colne and Trawden in England. The line was active from 1903 to 1934.

The tramway closed in 1934. It is estimated that the service had traveled over 4,582,000 miles and carried about 57.5 million passengers during the years it was active.

Today most the track has been removed, but traces of the cobbled road and the single rail can still be seen in Trawden. The terminus in Trawden was demolished and the terminus in Colne was also demolished.

In this view you can clearly see the cobblestone road and the rail splits into two rails. The cobblestone road and rails follows a small section of this road and then goes along a cobble stoned track that only trams used that took them up to the location of Trawden terminus. The section that only the trams used has become a walk path, but the single rail is still in place.
