SE2933 : To KNO or NOT, that is the question

To KNO or NOT, that is the question
To KNO or NOT, that is the question
Fortunately I had heard the announcement and knew that the train in the picture was a no KNO for me as it was not the NOT train.

When I arrived at Platform 17 for my train home, I found that it was occupied by two trains. Having trains to Knottingley and Nottingham leaving from the same platform within 5 minutes of each other might not sound ideal, but it does avoid passengers going to the wrong platform if they mishear the public address announcement.

Footnote: KNO and NOT are the official station codes for the two places. The platform is actually designated as 17a for the forward end and 17b for the rearward end.
