Apologies if this has been picked up elsewhere. Searched the forums and couldn't find anything. Feel free to delete if I'm duplicating.

The TPE services between Redcar Central and Manchester started running to the Airport again via the Chord on Sunday. They'd been running direct to Piccadilly after Stalybridge and terminating there. Now back running the original route via Victoria and Oxford Road.

The Sundays remained unaltered throughout. Too much pain for not enough gain (that could be said of emergency timetables more widely but that's another discussion).

Certainly was 'unique' having such a major station and depot served by just a handful of Anglo Scottish and early/late services though.

Sorry, I meant they started to run *daily* services again as of last Sunday. I guess technically they started yesterday, if the Sunday service never stopped!

I have to applaud TPE for resuming frequencies so early on. Other TOCs can definitely take note there.

There are still issues such as driver training on the new trains, however they are keeping the existing fleet for now so most services can run 5-or 6-car.
