[Note 148.2] "To get the Denholme railway":- Although the song is entitled the Halifax, Thornton and Keighley Railway it consistently refers to the line as the "Denholme railway". Given that the song is looking forward to the arrival of the line, it may be that the song comes from the area between Denholme and Keighley, the last section of the line to be built. A single track goods line opened as far as Denholme in 1882. The first passengers were carried in January 1884. [ibid]
