Parlington Woods, Colliery Fly-Line
Undated. View shows the Garforth-Aberford Colliery fly-line passing through Parlington Woods. This was a single track railway built in the 1830s to carry coal from Garforth to Aberford. It passed Sisters Pit and Isabella Pit before crossing the woods to the depot and coal staithes at Aberford with easy access to the Great North Road (A1). At the Garforth end there was a link to the main railway line at the east side of the station. Initially the trucks were pulled by gravity downhill to Aberford with a horse riding on a dandy cart, which would then haul the empty trucks back to Garforth. Later two steam engines, the 'Empress' and 'Ignifer' were purchased to take over this role.
