Ghostly railway lines

David Spencer finds history and family ghosts in Halifax, and Leigh Russell looks at the wrong side of the tracks. David Spencer takes us on a tour of Halifax, exploring its 20th century history and meeting his own family ghosts. Leigh Russell takes us far from the bucolic, to a piece of waste ground lying beside a railway track.
