60022 heads north with the 11.25 Kirkby Thore - Tyne Yard. The gypsum empties will run round at Carlisle and take the Tyne Valley line to Tyne Yard. Gypsum was being imported through Tyne Dock at the time due to a breakdown at Drax Power Station. Trains will also run this way via Carlisle and Tyne to Drax if there is a blockage to the south on the S & C.
