I am from Leeds and have heard that the Shipley to Cardiff Tidal scrap train is being hauled by a class 56. I remember from my working days on the railways that this service used to run on a Thursday. But I never knew the times.

Does anyone know an approximate time that the service passes Whitehall Junction, Leeds or somewhere there-abouts... And of course if it is indeed a Thursday service.

I had a feeling that would be the case! Typical really. I'll just have to keep an eye out for it I guess.

I've got no transport so travelling to see it is out of the question. Thanks anyway. No doubt if it's a grid on it then I'll see it eventually

There were two Grids in the sidings at Cardiff Central this morning approx 0750 - one painted in Railfest promotional colours, and another which escapes my memory.

I missed the 47 on stock by a few minutes, however stuck around Cardiff for the 56 move which was later caped with a replacement 6Z56 13:45 Tidal - Stockton brought up, which 56312 would work with 47812, with 56302 still left at Central. 6Z56 passed me late at Marshfield, crawling with 47812 leading, however 56312 was switched on, but reports from further north say that it was DIT

Anyone know if this is running this week and got a time at Shipley for the train, going to be travelling by train on the Airedale route a bit during the week so might try and see it.

When 55A Holbeck shut the work was moved to HM, this would be in the late 1980's
This train ran every day with ety's going to Crossley Eavans at around 06:30hrs.
These trucks were of the POA's with a load of around 45 tons.
Also 101 tone bogies for Sheerness Steel in Kent.
At the start , these trucks came from Hunslet Down Yard and taken back to this location.
After a while the rolling stock came up from Sheffield and were shunted out of a steel train going into Cobra Yard, on the angle of Wakefield Kirkgate.
I cannot recall the departure time away fro Shipley, but 16:00hrs seems good.
On the morning train, it usually went into the Down Loop at Kirkstall Signal box, and held their till the HM shunter called for it to come up to Shipley.
AS said, this train ran on everyday depending on the requirements of the day.
I have even been in this yard on a Saturday Morning to work this job.
The traction used was any loco knocking about in the yard at HM.
I have worked this train for over 25 years both in and out of this scrap yard.
On Thursday,17/06/93 @19:05 I signed on to go on the light engine to Shipley Crossley Evans to bring this train out and get taken off at Turners Lane, Wakefield, by a Tinsley Crew.

On a train...somewhere!
I had to laugh when the train was too long for the headshunt at Stockton. A very interesting and speedy move took place, with a bit of creative thinking, ensuring departure was on time...

Just as well the train wasn't a couple of wagons longer, as had it been more than the loco fouling the points then there would have been a bit more of a problem!

Oddly, waiting at Shipley station this morning, the platform 4 (which I presume this train would use to get to the scrap yard) display boards were saying 'passing train' at about 0830, but nothing came through.
