The public is respectfully informed, that on and after the 8th day of October instant, the train leaving Leeds at 7.50 a.m., and the one leaving Huddersfield at 1.0 p.m., are discontinued. Trains continue to run to meet all the trains on the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway (except the train leaving Manchester at 6.0p.m.), and passengers going from Leeds to Liverpool, Manchester, Rochdale, Halifax, or other stations on the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, will be booked to Heaton Lodge Junction, where they can re-book; and passengers coming from Liverpool, Manchester, Rochdale, Halifax, &c. should book to Mirfield, where the London and North Western trains await the arrival of the Lancashire and Yorkshire trains.

N.B. The up-trains from Leeds are arranged to arrive at Heaton Lodge Junction five minutes before the Lancashire and Yorkshire Company’s trains, in order that there may be sufficient time for passengers to re-book.

The WORTLEY STATION will be opened for purposes of traffic on the said 8th day of October instant.

By order,
MARK HUISH, General Manager.
Leeds, October 6, 1848.
