So i've looked on a few threads and the like, and i've noticed that Leeds - Micklefield - Selby will be electrified.


However, i've not seen anything on Micklefield - York. Is this being electrified? I've seen posts speaking of a transpennine electric service between Manchester/Liverpool and Newcastle which would say yes to my question, but i've not seen anything to suggest that the gap between Micklefield and York will be filled.

Leeds to Colton Jn is definitely already being done as part of the North Transpennine route announced way back. However the DfT press releases didn't mention it originally because they thought no-one would have heard of Colton Jn.
