I know someone who's going to be p'd at this, but then I think many of us would like a peep there.

Don't think many people have got that farChris, they are very tight about access.

The nearest we've got is this which you'll probably remember -

I'm not familiar with these. Are they rooms/arched between the river and Neville Street?

Is it just me or does thae article not suggest that some of the photos are included whereas the only photo I can see is of the photographer.

It also highlights another pet peeve of mine. The very brief article is interspersed with 6 YEP inserted hyperlinks. Angry

Train travellers may not recognise the scenes. But every day they stand directly above these hidden chambers as they come and go from Platform 8 at Leeds City Train Station.
So you are saying that in this context "these" is not being used as a possessive? Wink

Remember - this is the YEP. "These" could mean anything. Or nothing.    Wink

It looks to me as a waste of time on network rails part, they could have produced something very interesting there. Six months of waisted time in my opinion, an arty farty student not really having any other purpose other than a self indulgent portfolio. It's to show off to peope who aren't really bothered about the history of the railway station, Leeds, or history at all to be honest. I failed to see any pictures of the place, any history, info, fact, or anything slightly interesting about the station in that Y.E.P story at all.

It begs the question... Why lol?

Because lunacy was the influence for an album. It goes without saying that an album about lunacy will breed a lunatics obsessions with an album - The Dark side of the moon!
