It was definitely heading to York as I was out on a patrol when I saw it. I wonder why it is listed as going the other way? Tops wrong? Alternatively a change of plan but the loco would come back light not with a 6Z56 headcode!

I was thinking on the lines of the light engine headcoded 0Z56 going to York to collect wagons as 6Z56---but the times don't add up ---not to mention RTT / Colton Jn doesn't show anything York to Leeds !

A mystery.

I wonder if the wagon move is tomorrow in the early hours as there is an STP path from York to Leeds in. I think it is unusual for wagons to be moved on a Sunday, admittedly quieter but are there the staff to do the moves?
Does seem strange nonetheless. Maybe Bluebird Twitcher can shed some light on it?

Looks to me like it might be a tops error--
latest list shows
66601 DFHH YRKUPREC 166Z562U16 4 * TUNSTDBLI N 6M67

I'd guess it was 66601 and it should have read Midland rd then York as 0z56----but who knows ?

Yes just seen the list and looked back at my sightings and it was 0Z56 Leeds-York previously and then onto Tunstead as 6Z56, provided by Bluebird, I agree that it is most likkely to be a Tops error and the loco was #66601!

66601 DFHH YRKUPREC MIDLANDRD N 6Z56

Don't forget chaps, it's the second location that the loco actually is (the 'last location'), the former location being it's 'origin', so in the above example, 66601 is showing at Leeds Midland Road.

Often a scenario happens like that when the original move wasn't entered on TOPS, or was missed.

68020 the other day showed as this:
68020 XHTP BLTCHUDR1 MANCR ID
the loco was at Manchester International depot (Longsight), but for some reason the schedule (on RTT) wasn't activated until after the train had set off, show the loco's origin location still showed as Bletchley.

Thanks Dan ,
Confusing, for the following reason ----
66601 went to Midland Road on Friday night Saturday morning--Bredbury-Hunslet and doesn't appear to have moved since.
Sunday morning's list showed 66601 DFHH HUNSLETYD MIDLANDRD
so why show this mid afternoon Sunday- ? 66601 DFHH YRKUPREC MIDLANDRD N 6Z56
That's what's confusing !
