Journey check reports failed train on up Carlisle-Penrith - nothing on maps.
National Rail saying 60 minute delays , omitting to mention no trains Lancaster - Carlise in either direction!
Any idea on train involved?
I see the realigned Fast lines reopened at Norton Bridge today.
Seemingly all OK, presumably with a speed restriction till the end of the month?
Hopefully the last time the whole layout will need to be closed.
The 1600 Manchester Airport to Edinburgh train was cancelled at Preston as has been the 1243 London to Glasgow Looks like there has been a OHLE issue effecting lots of different trains. All seem to have cancelled "due to a problem with the overhead line power collection equipment "
Also the 1343 London to Glasgow is stuck at Wigan
There where also issues further south earlier just before 1230 between Weaver Junction and Warrington both the North and South bound trains between London and Glasgow where effected. However both seem to have continued on their way all be it late.
Doubt these are related incidents, but looks to have been a bit of a torrid afternoon on the WCML
