A rail firm is increasing its services between Leeds and London by almost a quarter to cope with passenger demand.
From Monday, GNER will run an extra 12 services on weekdays, creating 30,000 more seats a week. Trains from Leeds to the capital will run every half hour.
The firm said the route, which also serves passengers in Wakefield and Doncaster, was one of the busiest and fastest growing in Britain.
GNER is spending £20m to give its Leeds to London fleet a major makeover.
The high-speed diesel trains will get new interiors and engines by March 2009.
