Multi coloured 66718 was seen on the morning Drax train today - these have been in the hands of the class 60s for many months from my observations

6M77 failed at Todmorden last night and after putting 6M08 off, its engine worked the train forward via Copy Pit.

6M08 was 60095 on 03.19 Drax-Liverpoool Bulk Terminal and 6M77 60076 01.39 from Drax - all available from http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk.

To my mind the interesting part was the routing via Copy Pit - and that a path was activated at 06.10 to go back to Sudforth Lane from Todmorden, but 11 minutes later they had seemingly decided to go forward via Copy Pit, the seemingly sudden change perhaps explaining the three minute allowance from Blackburn to Farington Jcn!
