35018 just gone through KS alone on the webcam
And tender first on the other track
Looks great but what's happening to the train...it's gonna be real late back at York...probably diesel ???
From my Track Atlas it looks like it, unless you could propel the train and use the Appleby crossovers, which I suspect would not be allowed. Plus you would probably have to detrain everyone as well.
Update: 35018 proceeded to KS and can be seen running back towards Carlisle on Railcam. Landslide at Dent apparently.
As there's only one crossover at KS 35018 must be going right back to Appleby, leaving the train at KS! Will she cross over there and return to collect the train at KS?
The up line is shown as "shut" at Petterell Bridge Jct.
AND....landslide......ohhhh dear, hope its minor
But the train isn't at KS !! Nothing is now
Crossed over at KS and ran back Northbound.
Stock at Appleby whilst 35018 did its run round via KS!
