    0606 from Sheffield been stationary for ten mins after leaving Wakefield Kirkgate, only just been told they can proceed at slow speed due to "track issues".

    Weather affecting the line?

    Some TPE services appear affected - reporting signal issues - there's issues reported around Stalybridge but not clear if that's the signal fault affecting TPE

    Don't think it was a signal fault judging by the on board announcement.
    0550 from Sheffield was delayed as the train in front of it on Platform 2 (Lincoln) was broken. Had to leave station the wrong way and reverse to go via another platform.

    Can see the Sheffield bound train waiting up the line outside of Normanton.

    Everything a bit late, but have just seen a loco come through towards Leeds.

    On a train...somewhere!
    Cable theft, talking by signals around Lady Gordon Crossing between Wakefield Kirkgate and Normanton.

    Fallen trees caused issues on the Penistone Branch and the West Riding (BTET Doncaster - Leeds for a period).

    Plus a number of signalling issues on the ECML (points and crossing failures etc.)

    I've had better days!

    I thought we were rid of the copper faries.
