I have tried to improve the map of the station by adding the platforms 
and footbridge based on a trace I did a couple of weeks ago.  I hope I 
have not caused too much disturbance.

The Traveline North East region journey planner will give you the 
platfom numbers even from Hope to Manchester Piccadilly.  I would be 
interested to hear whether it would be acceptable to use such a source 
of information in OSM.  It comes from the same data source as the 
screens on the station so I don't think there can be much copyright 
difference whether you read it on a station screen or internet screen.
