I'm travelling later today from Huddersfield to Cottingley. There's no direct train during the day so my options are as follows: 13:59 HUD - DEW (nt)* and then 14:41 DEW - COT (nt), arr 14:54 or 14:27 HUD - LDS (ftpe) and then 15:56 LDS - COT (nt), arr 15:02 The latter is a better fit for me time-wise, but apparently I'd have to buy two separate tickets for it - one to Leeds and then one back to Cottingley. This seems crazy to me - why is it like that? Why can't I just buy a HUD - COT single and travel that way? *The 14:12 FTPE service from Huddersfield which would have got me to Dewsbury at a better time is cancelled today.
