Hi guys, just noticed, all the TPX trains are coming past me on my local line (Huddersfield - Halifax, half of it is single track)

My mum says they are coming past every 10 minutes, which would make sense as they are that frequent.

Any ideas of a diversion?

Line closed between Stalybridge - Man Pic, also Stalybridge to Man Vic due to engineering.

Some TPX running Leeds - Man Vic via Bradford, some running Leeds - Huddersfield - Man Vic via Brighouse.

There's only a short section of single track, isn't there? Should be possible to run a pretty frequent service over the diversionary route, especially if some are avoiding Huddersfield (and therefore the Bradley Jn. - Bradley Wood Jn. single line) by running either direct from Heaton Lodge Jn. to Bradley Wood Jn., or running via Bradford.

That'll be why I saw two 185s in Manchester Victoria station at around 12:50 last Sunday then.

Annoyingly though, the side destination displays on both of them were displaying "Transpennine Express", instead of actually displaying the destination of the train, so I can't say where they were going.
