Hi

Just checked working timetable and it show train 5M48 leaving Hellifield at 9:52 going to Settle Jnc and returning to Hellifield.
It leaves again at 14:32 as 5M51 to do the same round trip.
It runs Sundays only until 14/05/17.
Can anyone tell me what this working is, please?

Cheers

Mike

Thanks for the reply.
Did a bit more digging and found the connecting train from/to Preston.
Thought they could have done the cross-over at Hellifield and put the ECS in one of the goods loops without going to Settle Jnc.

I don't think there is a straightforward crossover at Hellifield. By the time it would have shunted to a goods siding it's probably just as quick and easy to go to Settle Jn. I'm taking my layout facts from an old Quail map so things could have changed since then.

It is the empty stock move to form the return working back to Preston/Blackpool.
Despite all the track work at Hellifield there is no signalled move from either the Horrocksford line or the Skipton line back into the Up platform.
