    interesting diversion

    On 13.23 Plymouth 125 (MO) to Edinburgh yesterday. Due to 'animals on the line at Ambergate' we were diverted at Derby via Trent Junction etc, rejoining at Clay Cross. I take it that Sheet Stores junction to Trent East junction sees regular passenger or is it a 'rare curve'? Had it not been for...
