On occasions like this one tends to pace up and down, go slowly to the end of the platform to peer at the Yorkshire scenery and the stone-built Victorian factories and houses, and then back again to stare at the sandwiches and chocolate bars on display in the station shop, but not really wanting one.
The roof of the station is half open to the weather and the rain had decided to take advantage of the gentle slope of the platform to organise some parallel rivulet races across its width.
