Tuesday 22/11/11 Leeds station 1529 Leeds to Poppleton . Turned up at Platform 5c at Leeds to find a 2 car pacer doing an impression of a circle line tube train at rush hour. Service was missing another 2 coaches and there was a load of people trying to get on . Have to say that the Northern guard/conductor really did a good job keeping his cool. He remained polite and calm in the face of a frustrated crowd of people who couldn't get on. I did manage to squeeze in after he got people inside to breathe in a bit and normal service was resumed after Horsforth. Quite a few regulars to places like Cattal and Poppleton were saying these peak hour services should skip Horsforth and run fast to Weeton. It did seem a bit hard on those left behind for destinations beyond Knaresboro as they had to wait an hour, where people for stations to Horsforth had another train in fifteen minutes. Anyway Mr Guard if your on here ... well done mate , you're a credit to Northern.
