Leeds New Station Train Shed - DNT00132


Seen here late 19th or early 20th century looking westwards with an NER train on the right. This view and the bridge across the lines remained little changed until into the second half of the 20th century. The platform numbering is not sequential. The platforms on the left which are the farthest from the ticket barriers read from left to right 7 and 6 but the two centre platforms to their right, nearer to the barriers, are 9 and 8! Comments welcome.

In the mid-1930s the station was re-named Leeds City South and with the closure of Central and Wellington Stations in the late 1960s the overall reduced passenger services, resulting from the closure of lines and stations, were concentrated here and in 1967 it was partly re-developed. In 2002 it was completely re-built and the number of platforms increased from 12 to 17. Today it is the second busiest station outside London.
