    Some more changes were published this afternoon:
    Changes from 24 Oct 2019 (281) to 30 Oct 2019 (282).

    Permitted Route changes:
    London Group (G01) to Retford (RET) gain NM+DG+JL
    This journey now has mapped routes via Newark Castle.
    In particular, they use the Nottingham-Newark-Lincoln section of the DG map.

    Easement changes:

    Removed:
    700100 (Circuitous Route) Customers travelling from Brough to York and in possession of tickets routed 'DIRECT' may not travel via Doncaster. This easement applies in both directions.

    700154 (Circuitous Route) Customers travelling from Crewe to Padgate, Birchwood, Glazebrook and Irlam in possession of tickets routed 'Direct' may not travel via Manchester Oxford Road and/or Manchester Piccadilly. This easement applies in both directions.
    There haven't been any "DIRECT" fares on these routes for a few years, so these easements already had no effect.

    Added:

    700885 (Doubleback) From 15 December 2019 customers travelling from Lawrence Hill, Filton Abbeywood, Stapleton Road and via Stapleton Road to Bristol Parkway or via Bristol Parkway may doubleback at Bristol Temple Meads. This doubleback easement will apply in both directions.
    The number of direct services is being reduced, with Stapleton Road (for example) having no trains to Bristol Parkway on weekdays between the morning and evening peaks.

    This is a "doubleback" easement rather than a "local" one. I can't check at the moment, but I think this means that it has no effect on a journey between (say) Stapleton Road and Bristol Parkway.

    Changed:

    700316 (Circuitous Route) Customers travelling via Bedford to Flitwick, Harlington or Leagrave in possession of tickets routed "Not London" or "AP EMT & CONNECTIONS (00700) NOT VIA LONDON or (00486) AP EMR & CONNECT" may not travel via Luton. This circuitous route easement applies in both directions.

    700368 (Routeing Point) Customers travelling from Luton Airport Parkway or Luton via Kettering in possession of tickets routed "EMT & Connections (00486) EMR & CONNECT" may travel via Bedford Midland. This circuitous route easement applies in both directions.

    700564 (Routeing Point) This positive routeing point easement will override fares checking which is preventing journeys being offered via Staines on tickets routed 00486 AP EMT & Connections (00486) AP EMR & CONNECT. This easement applies in both directions

    700660 (Routeing Point) For journeys to Cambridge from Moston, Mills Hill (Manchester), Castleton (Manchester), Rochdale, Smithy Bridge, Littleborough and Walsden on tickets routed (00422) PETERBOROUGH & VTEC LNER, (00493) AP XC EMTR & CONNS and (00700) NOT VIA LONDON, may travel via Sowerby Bridge and Halifax. This Routeing Point easement overrides the NFM64 fares check and operates in both directions.

    700838 (Routeing Point) Journeys from Elsecar and Wombwell to Willesden Junction priced on route (00486) AP EMTR & CONNECTIONS are denied via Meadowhall by (NFM64) fares checking. This routeing point easement will apply and operate in both directions.
    These changes just remove some references to former train companies.

    Some more changes were published on Wednesday:

    Changes from 30 Oct 2019 (282) to 06 Nov 2019 (283).

    Permitted Route changes:

    London Group (G01) to Weymouth Group (G33) gain WX+EU lose LB+CW
    An "any permitted" ticket for this journey no longer has mapped routes via Ford.
    It now has mapped routes which go via both Clapham Junction and Yeovil.

    While there are "any permitted" tickets for routes between some related stations, actual London-Weymouth/Dorchester tickets all have "via Southampton", "via Westbury" or "SWR only" routes. These are unaffected by this change.

    Stalybridge (SYB) to Stockport (SPT) lose GM
    This journey no longer has mapped routes via Wilmslow.

    Easement changes:

    Removed:

    000009 (Manual) Customers holding tickets to Ireland routed through either Nottingham or Derby can travel via Birmingham New St to connect with the 2230 Birmingham New St to Holyhead service
    The evening train to Holyhead now leaves Birmingham at 22:52. The timetable doesn't make travel via Birmingham an especially attractive option anyway.

    000036 (Local) Journeys from Stockport to Stalybridge may go via Manchester. Journeys via Stockport and Stalybridge may go via Manchester. These easements apply in both directions.
    Tickets between Stockport and Stalybridge either have a "Metrolink CTLZ" route (so are valid via Manchester) or a "not via Manchester" one. This change may have an effect on some longer distance journeys, but I don't know which ones.

    700868 (Map) Due to engineering closures between Bristol and Cheltenham Spa, Cross Country services will be diverted via Bath Spa and Swindon on 26 and 27 October and 03 November 2019. This map easement will apply in both directions.

    700871 (Map) Customers travelling to Edinburgh and beyond, whose normal route is via Newcastle and Berwick upon Tweed, may travel via Carlisle during engineering works on Saturdays between 14 September and 12 October 2019; Sundays 15 and 22 September 2019. This map easement applies in both directions
    Two temporary easements with dates in the past.

    Added:

    700886 (Circuitous Route) On Sunday 24 November 2019 customers travelling from Reigate to Purley, Purley Oaks, South Croydon and via South Croydon should use the rail replacement service to Purley and not the rail replacement service to Gatwick Airport. This circuitous route easement applies in both directions.
    It's usually quicker to use the rail replacement bus to Purley, but there are exceptions.

    The earliest someone going from Purley on that date can reach Reigate by train and rail replacement bus is 5:45, travelling via Gatwick. The earliest someone using a through ticket can do it is 6:35.

    Changed:

    000001 (Manual) (Local) Journeys from stations on the the Great Yarmouth-Norwich line via Acle to stations on the Norwich-Lowestoft line may go via Norwich. This easement applies in both directions.

    000005 (Manual) (Local) Journeys from stations on the Barton-on-Humber line to Habrough and stations west of Habrough may double back between Habrough and Grimsby. This easement applies in both directions.

    000020 (Manual) (Local) Journeys via Todmorden, Hebden Bridge and Burnley Manchester Road may double back from Halifax. This easement applies in both directions.

    000034 (Manual) (Local) Journeys from or via Poulton-le-Fylde to Layton may double back from Blackpool North. This easement applies in both directions.
    A few early "manual" easements have been turned into "local" ones. These changes shouldn't have much effect, but I don't know enough about the implementation to say how web sites interpret them.

    000016 (Manual) Journeys from Caterham, Whyteleafe South and Whyteleafe to South Croydon and beyond may go via Upper Warlingham. This manual easement applies in both directions. It reflects the presence of a fixed walk time in timetable data between Whyteleafe and Upper Warlingham.

    000017 (Manual) Journeys from Upper Warlingham and stations south of Upper Warlingham and South Croydon and beyond may go via Whyteleafe. This manual easement applies in both directions. It reflects the presence of a fixed walk time in timetable data between Upper Warlingham and Whyteleafe.
    I don't think the extra sentence affects the meaning of these easements.

    Could they modify the easement to just allow travel vai Gatwick for the one service where it is faster?
