Guard on the platform at Leeds station, by Lynn Patrick, 8 March 2001. The guard's job is to make sure the platform is clear and all passengers are on board, before signalling to the driver that it is safe to leave. Behind him is a Northern Spirit train, bound for Skipton. At this time Leeds Station had been refurbished and brand new trains served the lines to Ilkley and Skipton.
