Updates: 13:10 Disruption to services in the Cononley area is likely to continue throughout Thursday 27 April. GNER services to and from Skipton and Bradford Forster Square will start and terminate at Leeds. Northern Rail will operate a revised timetable which will be posted here as soon as it is available.

Anyone know more details on this? I presume it's something like an overheight vehicle that's brought the wires down. Unlikely to be a collision, or else I'm very sure we'd have heard about it. Must be fairly bad though since it's been up since yesterday.

Oh I see. I was confused by National Rail's 'temporary timetable'. My apologies :)
