I remember having to wait about three hours for a train from this station on this occasion having under estimated the distance I had to walk from Hawes (luckily I had a book to read). This was just the start of what became a day of delays, my connection at Leeds was more than an hour late, a replacement service was put on, but this train broke down at Derby. By the time I reached my destination of Worcester it was 11:30pm, six hours later than my anticipated arrival. A glance at my diary for that day and I see I bought Leonard Cohen's Greatest Hits on vinyl whilst in Leeds. Fitting music really for such a poor day of travelling.
