    As the thread title says. Happened this morning between South Gosforth and Benton. I hope one of these days they get what they deserve - 1500 volts of direct current.

    4 people have been arrested apparently, which is good news.

    Just out of curiosity were the trains that were stopping at South Gosforth reversing back there over the points or were they using the depot siding just off the Regent Centre curve?

    Normally when there is disruption they would use the Regent Centre siding, or if this is not available, the South Gosforth one. There are various difficulties in using the west neck headshunt which you mention due to the way the signalling is set up.
