i missed my last bus home because of this. I had to get 3 other buses then to get home which took me 2 hours. The train stop about 1 min away from the station, no other train was at the station why did this happen? I was meant to get home for 5:30 from getting off the Huddersfield train in barnsley at 5.00pm but instead i got home at 8.00pm. I was not happy.
