Where is your train? As some of the regular rail users know – Monday 5 June evening rush hour was not that rushed this week due to an obstruction on the line near Brearley. The following note received from Network Rail in connection with other works they have around here – PLUS some useful Apps and websites dealing with Real Live Train Times. If you know of any other sites, please let us all know. Ta Dear Geoff …. I would like to take the opportunity to provide you with an update on the event which happened yesterday in the Mytholmroyd area. You are probably aware that at around 15.00 yesterday (Monday) a Northern service operating between Manchester Victoria and Leeds struck a tree which had uprooted in Mytholmroyd. As a result, the train was damaged and unable to continue its journey, meaning the line was blocked for the rest of day. Engineers worked throughout the evening and overnight to clear the line to allow services to resume this morning/the following day (Tuesday). None of the 40 passengers on board the damaged train were injured, and all were safety evacuated onto another train. It is believed that high winds caused the tree to fall and block the tracks. We thank all those disrupted by the incident for their patience. I have attached a couple of images too. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
