When the Leeds, Bradford and Halifax Junction Railway (later absorbed by the Great Northern) arrived in Bradford they initially built a terminus at Adolphus Street. This was poorly situated, so a link line was built from east of the terminus looping south and joining the existing Lancashire and Yorkshire line at Mill. Lane junction, allowing LB & HJ services to enter Bradford Exchange station. The station was closed to passengers in 1867 as a result, and was closed completely in the 1960s and subsequently demolished.
