    Was on the 15.56 from Bolton to Buxton today and we had to stop somewhere between Bolton and Salford Crescent apparently due to an arson attack? Train staff seem to be of tending to the issue as two of them got the fire extinguishers off the train I was on. Ended up taking around 45 minutes to get to Piccadilly which is where I wanted to go. Anyone have more info on the arson attack?

    A signal head was on fire.

    Sustained superficial damage to the hoods and was still working normally.
