Calls for a new railway age in North Yorkshire


12:01am 11th November 2011

Responding to public demand in the Stamford bridge area, campaigners working for the reinstatement of the Beverley to York railway, have held a public meeting in the village.
Residents have quized campaigners on proposals to restore the line which was closed in the 1960s under the Beeching axe.

The former line ran through the centre of the village connecting it to the national rail  network at York .
Speaking today, George McManus, the Chairman of the campaign and former Mayor of Pocklington said:

'It's good residents in the area can have their say.

"Hopefully we will be able to encourage people to join our campaign and have allayed some fears."
York branch organiser, David Wells from York said:

"I believe that re-opening this line would be of enormous benefit to businesses and residents of the area as well
as beneficial to the environment, helping to preserve the area's natural beauty for generations to come."
