Train services have restarted through Baildon following repairs carried out by Network Rail at the site of a landslip in the town.

No trains have been able to run through the area since February 9. However repairs have been carried out at the site, allowing trains between Bradford Forster Square and Ilkley to once again operate since yesterday (Sunday 30 June).

Monitoring of the landslip repair will continue to make sure there are no issues or risks to train services.

Network Rail wants to thank passengers for their patience and understanding while services have been affected.

It also wants to thank all residents impacted by the work over recent months.

Jason Hamilton, Network Rail’s route director for its North & East route, said: “I would like to reiterate my heartfelt thank you to all impacted local residents for their support and cooperation during what has been a difficult time for the community.

“While services have now restarted, I also want to say thank you to passengers who have faced disruption to rail services for their patience and understanding of the situation.”

We appreciate it has caused significant disruption to people’s journeys over several weeks and we are very happy to be able to resume services along the line once again.”
