TPE service on the down involved apparently so presume a 175.

Doubt they'll bother with S&C just stop the lot and run the empties when its been cleared or even first thing tomorrow.

Thanks for your reply 87015.

I made that assumption about the possible 175 myself, but wasn't quite sure.

I also know that the S&C line is rarely used in times like this, because of the longer journey time, and possible re-opening of the WCML whilst a train is slowly going along the S&C.

I wonder how many 57's are near the Preston to Carlisle stretch of the WCML? I know that there's sometimes 1 in the n/b bay by platform 3 at Preston.

Are the 57's having any problems coupling up with 390's, on weekend drags still? I remember that the 57 sent to rescue the Rugby broken down windscreen wiper 390 failed couldn't do.

Not a good day for TPE - one down at Garforth (between Leeds - York) yesterday as well.

Maybe the first 185 fatality :(
