Wakefield Kirkgate

Looking east along platform 3 at Wakefield Kirkgate showing the original canopy, albeit devoid of glass, still in situ on 16 May 2011. At the far end of the former overall roof support wall the canopy also runs fully across platforms 2 & 3. Surveyors can be seen at the far end of the platform. They indicated that the platform was due to be cleared fully to leave just a waiting shelter. Platform 3 is used by the local Pontefract line service plus the three return Grand Central services between Bradford Interchange and London Kings Cross; including the 11.13 service which I was waiting to join.
