West Yorkshire Class 333s

The first of a sequence of pictures from a road trip. Sixteen West Yorkshire Class 333 were built in 2001by CAF with Siemens equipment, with additional cars added in 2002-3. These operate on lines from Leeds to Bradford Forster Square, Ilkley and Skipton.

 333005 arrives at Shipley with a Leeds - Bradford train, 26th May
333005 is seen again, this time at Ilkley on 27th May. The lines on the left were always terminal platforms, the car park on the right were the through platforms to the Yorkshire Dales. Compare with this 1956 picture from the collection of the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Railway.
