I'd have thought that would be the best one could hope for. Maybe one
in the morning (making a connection, allowing the very early morning
ex-Carlisle to feed into it), maybe one at 09.00-ish ex Settle.
These would allow reasonable connectivity with east Lancs. then
another 3 or 4 spread out in the day.
Apart from the premier L&Y Scottish trains, I suspect the local
service in steam days was very sparse.
