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 but remained in use for parcels and freight traffic until 1972. After complete closure the station was subsequently demolished.
