    Tomorrow I'm getting a train departing from Huddersfield to Nottingham
    This requires getting a connecting train from Wakefield
    When I buy the tickets from the train station will
    I get two tickets that say Huddersfield to Wakefield
    Then Wakefield to Nottingham?
    I'm scared can someone give me some advice on this and how quickly it is to find a platform

    It might say something in via on your ticket but it's unlikely they will be seperate tickets, what you can do is get the national rail app, which will show which platform you need and you can also check the station map so you know where to go as soon as you get to wakefield

    Probably one ticket.

    Remember your journey is simpler than anyone in the south of England, who have Southern trains.

    No, you'll probably get one ticket.

    It shouldn't take long, the direction signage is normally pretty good.

    Details of Wakefield Kirkgate station are here:
    http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/stations/WKK/details.html It appears to have only 3 platforms, so it would be difficult to go too far wrong.

    Looks for the arrival/departure boards which will tell you which platform to go to.

    Probably a good idea to look at the National Rail Enquiries site. Search for the journey you're planning and click on the "Details" link. That will tell you the timings of the trains, and you'll see how long you have to wait between trains (assuming they're running on time of course).

    If the train says "any route" does this mean I can catch any connecting train to get to my route with my one ticket I purchased?

    Yes exactly it means you must enter through the first place and leave at the second but you can go through any station to get there. If you're unsure though you can ask the person you buy the ticket off to print off your route on a little slip of paper which will tell you the train times.

    It's super easy to find the platforms and there are always staff around if you get stuck or aren't sure.
