    Shown on RTT as cancelled between York NRM and York Yard North RS.
    Presumably VSTP from NRM siding unless it departed coupled to 45699 Loco & POB move to Holgate Sdgs.

    Cheers, Neil

    Understand that there was a minor problem with the support coach, but sorted and whistled her way past the Scarborough Spa as we were doing the loco swap in Holgate.

    Considering all the "no reports" on realtime trains between Doncaster and Peterborough it begs the question, where does opentraintimes get its data from? Dead reckoning?

    Opentraintimes have left everything between Doncaster and Peterborough blank, whereas Realtime puts no reports as the loco has gone direct down the ECML and not via Lincoln etc, so really no difference between either website reporting wise.

    I was referring to Opentraintimes maps, rather than the report, that updated where there is coverage.

    Point taken about missing Lincoln, I guess the report can't deviate from the planned route.
