Leeds Feltham 569 is about to use over the crossover at Parkside to return on the football special service to Swinegate Depot whilst a long queue of passengers wait for Horsfield 252 behind, and subsequent cars, to take them through the woods to Middleton and perhaps beyond on its journey to Crossgates. A Horsfield on the left loads for the journey to the city centre whilst another one waits behind 252 to turn on the crossover, also to return to the city centre.
The observant will note that the tensioned overhead wire is raised to a higher level at this point with a looser drop wire below, installed in order to make it easier to reverse the bow collector. The stand of the Hunslet R.L.F.C. can be seen in the right background.
