Monday 10th January 2011 ~ 37578 - What again ?

The week got off to a good start with an all low floor service today. Mid morning L11 11.18 Wisbech - Peterborough failed to appear and it was noted returning on the 11.50 Peterborough - Lowestoft running just 4 late with 37565, so I guess it ran via the Wisbech bypass on the outward after an unexpected delay.
After this hiccup, everything ran smoothly again for a while.
Of note were some very smart turn rounds at Peterborough, 37564 was 7 late from Wisbech on the 10.18, but on time coming back and even pedalcar 37156 on Y6 managed to convert a six minute defecit into just 2 minutes on the 09.50 ex Peterborough.
The first signs of anything amiss came when 37569 on K14 which had gone over to Peterborough spot on time, was 13 late coming back. Apparently an accident had partly closed the A47 near the Cromwell Road roundabout and the road wasn't fully  open again until approx 18.30. K15 with 37576 was not seen by me, so I'm guessing it went from Guyhirn to Wisbech via Wisbech St. Mary. By the time K19 15.18 Wisbech to Peterborough passed by me at 15.26, things had obviously worsened as 7minutes later it was back heading back into town, having turned round to avoid the blockage, It was then seen at 15.35 departing via Chapel Road to take the Wisbech St. Mary route. Bruce saw 578 returning at Walsoken about 45 late. 37567 on K2 was seen at Queensgate by Tony Irle at 17.20, so roughly on time and there don't appear to have been any swaps due to the delays.
