The railway say that you should allow 5 minutes to make the longest interchange at Cononley, which is from the furthest end of one platform to the stopping point on the other. So if I allowed double that time to make a shorter interchange (from one side of the crossing to the stopping point on the far platform) but missed my train because the railway kept the barriers down for 20 minutes,** it was my fault? You'd get laughed out of court if you tried that defence if someone sued.In my day (not that long ago either) we would have realised that it was our own fault.
*The only realistic interpretation of "minimum connection time"
**Why the barriers remained down is completely irrelevant.
