Goole sign

Goole was the day's last station after a short trip from Snaith to let us get back to Sheffield. Light was fading but there was enough to poke around this small town station. It has a modern frontage and travel centre:

To the side of the travel centre is a bike rack and the entrance to platform 2:

Platform 2 has a glazed metal canopy:

East Riding of Yorkshire Council have put an information point at the station. Sadly Northern have covered it with a big notice saying it's not a ticket collection machine...

Platform 2 canopy has the station name on its end:
