13:50 #1E35 Liverpool - Scarborough TPE not on RTT
68 pushing, short nameplate so think it might be #68027 Fury, but not sure.

Reason for the diverts, from a TPE driver, was that there was a full possession on to try and fix a recurring track circuit failure between Micklefield and Church Fenton and only the drivers with the route knowledge via Cas were allowed this way. Sadly I missed the 68!

It must have been a quick possession, because I only saw that 1 divert.
I also thought that all TPE drivers had Route Knowledge through Cas for such reasons.

#1P67 2x185's also diverted through at 10.35 and when I looked at the map there was still trains running in the affected area! Trains then continued to run that way.
No, no all TPE drivers have Route knowledge through Cas as seen when there was that accident at Leeds a few weeks ago with someone injured on the track at the station. The drivers with Route knowledge came through Cas but others were held up/delayed at Leeds station. Possibly with the current situation TPE aren't doing much training on the 'Cas' route as it would involve more than one in the cab at once which they are not doing due to social distancing.
