Train name is high note for band
A high speed inter city locomotive unit has been named after the world-famous Black Dyke Band amid a fanfare at a West Yorkshire railway station.

The GNER train was given the name to honour the band's 150th anniversary and was greeted into Bradford's Forster Square station by the band in uniform.

The band was founded in Queensbury, near Bradford, by workers at the Black Dyke Mills.

It has previously appeared with Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Elton John.
