This picture looking towards Mirfield Station was taken from the signal box that until the early 1970's used to stand
opposite Lower Hopton School. The locomotive is an Aspinall class 3F 0-6-0 originally built by the Lancashire & Yorkshire railway in the 1890's. The loco would have also seen service
under the London Midland & Scottish Railway and soldiered on into the twilight years of steam in the 1950's & 60's with British Railways.
