More than 80 students design 50m-long colourful display at Halifax station, depicting the town’s culture, history and wildlife.
The new installation features nearby landscapes and wildlife, runs along the station approach and has 47 panels – stretching to more than 50m long. The project was carried out by the Halifax Station Partnership with support from Northern.
Tony Baxter, regional director at Northern, said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to the incredibly talented students whose artworks now have pride-of-place at the station.
“It can now be enjoyed by everyone in the community when they visit the station and is something for everyone to embrace, enjoy and be proud of. These young people also volunteer at Halifax station and it is their hard work and dedication that makes the station so welcoming.”
Northern is the second largest train operator in the UK, with 2,500 services a day to more than 500 stations across the North of England.
