I think its going to be a rescue job unless the staff can resurrect one of the power cars however if that happens would they risk sugar loaf tunnelInformation on the train, such as its been, has been that it was the front power car. I did think the train was proceeding noticeably slowly all the way along the Heart of Wales line until we came to a stand at Cynghordy. And indeed when we set off it was a considerably more sprightly pace!

Credit to the staff then
Indeed, my only major complaint is aimed at 43 058. I have a minor complaint that some more PA announcements (even if they were just "I have no more information at the moment") would have been appreciated.Fair play to a cracking team of people to get it going again
``Yeah that was due to not having to wait 40 odd minutes at Knighton for a service train to pass.
Terminated at P5 Manchester Piccadilly I've just read.It left Stockport but hasn't tracked since. Is it struggling again, or perhaps diverted to Piccadilly?
A lot more left the train at Crewe than had boarded in the morning. The unit returned to Crewe from Piccadilly picking up its intended path from Preston so crew were a few minutes early back to base.Terminated at P5 Manchester Piccadilly I've just read.
edit: reported transport from Crewe for Pax. Something to do with a possession in the Manchester area I gather.
Worth it though! Even with the delay I was so pleased to have finally ticked off that line and what a wonderful line it is! Plus HST first class carriages are a far nicer way to travel than a 153Adds to the challenge of running specials down that long single track line!
