Wakefield Westgate

Looking north from the down platform at Wakefield Westgate with the former steam era headshunt straight ahead still in regular use. Once used to hold steam locos that took forward Bradford via Morley coaches detached from Kings Cross - Leeds services it is now used for reversing services to & from Leeds, via Halifax, arriving and departing from platform 2. Those services arriving and/or departing from Platform 1 run forward to electrified run round sidings in the former Wrenthorpe Yard to the left beyond the crossover in the distance.
