    Meanwhile, any idea what the name "Forest City" refers to? Not Nottingham, probably. (I am a Nottingham Youth)

    Thanks for the clarification and correction, folks. Just for the record, trains pass Eaglescliffe with coal (not just biomass) for Drax. I can see into the wagons from my upstairs window!

    Thanks. It's notable that it's not every train, and the wagons appear to be a fairly scruffy "scratch" set , some bearing the remains of National Power livery. I live next to the line south of Eaglescliffe South, so get the chance to watch closely.

    Apologies if this appears elsewhere, but does anyone know why certain MGR workings from The North East (mainly to Drax) are running with 42 wagons rather than the usual 22? There's usually a dead loco in tow, too.

    Significant disruption on ECML near Durham and Newark 09/10

    I've just watched (on Open Train Times) 1P17 (0817 TPE Manchester - Newcastle) set back into a siding at Tursdale Junction (Ferryhill) 136 late. The siding is not showing occupied. 1E11 just passed me at Eaglescliffe South.
