A meeting to discuss reopening the Skipton to Colne line is to be held

The open meeting will be held at the Earby New Road Community Centre starting at 7pm on January 14th.

The SELRAP (Skipton-East Lancashire Rail Action Partnership) campaign group has had a very positive year beginning with the announcement by the Secretary of State for Transport Chris Grayling that he would commit to a full feasibility study of the Skipton to Colne route.

Continued support for the re-opening is reflected in individual membership growing to 540. They include people with an engineering background and experience in the transport industry.

Interested members of the community are very welcome to the meeting where they will be joined by SELRAP members.
