I see the train eventually got back to York after 1 am. Quite a testing day for passengers, stewards and crews who were at the mercy of the elements. There is not really much that can be planned in advance to anticipate such an event. With problems on the roads in the area and the number of people to transport, a return by rail was the only sensible solution. Even then, the rescue traction had to be close enough for that to be practicable, not to mention the need to muster extra crews. Well done to all for getting everyone back eventually. Lucky that Carnforth was not several hundred miles away from the incident.
