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 see the old single rail going up towards the Trawden terminus. This section of the old tramway has become a footpath.
