Artist's Description

Hawes Railway Station is a disused railway station that served the town of Hawes in North Yorkshire, England. It was closed in 1959 and now forms part of the Dales Countryside Museum.

The station was opened in October 1878 by the Midland Railway (MR) as the terminus of their 6-mile (9.7 km) branch line from Hawes Junction (now renamed Garsdale).

After many years of disuse, the site was purchased by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and converted into a museum and tourist information centre in the early 1990s, a role it continues to fulfill to this day. As part of this scheme, the station buildings and platforms were refurbished, a short length of track relaid and on display and facing Garsdale is a 0-6-0T (RSHN 7845/1955) dressed-up in BR livery as ‘67345’ at the head of three Mark 1 coaches. The locomotive is a replica of the last locomotive to work out of Hawes Station.

Although isolated from the national rail network for over fifty years, the Wensleydale Railway hopes one day to restore the station to active use by reopening the currently abandoned and derelict section of line between Redmire and Garsdale.

Hawes is a small market town and civil parish in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, being granted its market charter in 1699. Historically within the North Riding of Yorkshire.

Hawes is located at the head of Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales and is one of the tourist attractions of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
