Agreed, excellent photos. I recall this happening, just 2 months following the Penmanshiel tunnel collapse in March. Following this event a significant number of ECML freight workings from Scotland were re routed via the WCML, S&C and Leeds. I used to spend a lot of time in Guiseley Jct box at Shipley in those days with a signalman friend and I recall it was busy! Rare to see freightliners passing the box too!
I guess the Settle Jct accident caused further headaches, how long did it take to fit the single lead Jct and re-open for traffic?
