#66015 #6M16 Wilton Efw Terminal to Knowsley Freight Terminal
Anyone able to confirm this continued to Castleford, and beyond after appeaing to be 'stuck' at Colton Jn?
Was there a problem with the feeds for ailcam and did RTT go down although RTT showed it to be at Castleford at 11.54 although I wasn't in a position to see it!

First off, #66059 was on the train, presumably having taken over from 66015 at Tees Yard.

Secondly, the maps were sticking but RTT appeared to be reporting OK generally---except for 6M16 that I could see.

6M16 was affected somehow on RTT presumably by a blip--I'm guessing this happened at Castleford because it passed me on time at Thornhill but showing on the maps as a scrambled headcode---the maps having fortunately for me come good again at the right time. The blip obviously caused 6M16 to stop reporting at Castleford. The other train I was after wasn't affected at all on RTT ---very strange.

Thank you for the explanation Derek, it would have been easier if I had been able to see and confirm the sighting myself. I was able to get to see the line at just after 12 and cars were just starting to move to/from the level crossing but 6M16 was showing at Colton and RTT was up to date. Looked at the Wakefield map with nothing there, not even a scrambled headcode.
Seems strange that only 6M16 was obviously affected

Probably more trains affected, but I wasn't looking for any others !

Fair point but if the other train you were after was showing and I saw a couple still 'live' with the correct headcode and moving....
The driver of #66059 had posted a couple of photos on Facebook on the train at Tees Yard
