This facsimile publication sets out the pattern of train movements to be seen at Leeds City station during the summer of 1939. The book contains passenger and parcels train working details as well as empty stock and light engine movements between Neville Hill, Waterloo Sidings, Copley Hill (ex-LYR) and Farnley (ex-LNWR). The many through portions, detached passenger coaches, restaurant cars, postal parcels vans and transfers between City and Central station added to the intense traffic seen here. Leeds City was one of the true railway hubs. LMS services came in from as far as St Pancras, the West of England, Scotland, Manchester, Liverpool and Blackpool over former Midland, LNWR and LYR routes. The LNER services radiated out to Harrogate, Wetherby, Hull, York and many other destinations in Yorkshire and the North East.
