Being one of my local tourist attractions, I try to visit twice a year in different seasons. Today was superb warm sunshine with a strong breeze making wonderful noises through the trees which follow the line. Special 2 week 20.14% fare reduction in honour of Tour de France Grand Depart having been in the area, so only £5.60 for an all-day adult ticket. The train really does get up a fair speed and the smell of the engine smoke blowing past the open windows is a sheer delight. Opting to return on the next again train, I'd around 70 minutes sat in the sun at the Shelley station picnic benches enjoying refreshments from the smart little almost new café, looking out towards Emley Moor mast. Really cannot fault any aspect of this attraction. Easy run out by car from Wakefield, or catch the 435/436 bus which connects Wakefield and Holmfirth.
