Hattersley Cutting, with Cleethorpes - Manchester express
Hattersley Cutting, with Cleethorpes - Manchester express
View eastward, towards Woodhead and Sheffield etc., ex-Great Central Manchester - Sheffield main line, which since July 1981 was cut back to a local line just to Hadfield. The masts for the electrification had been erected in 1939 but electrification was not complete until the New Woodhead Tunnel was opened in June 1954. The very deep cutting used to be two tunnels until they were opened out in 1931. The train is the 09.27 Cleethorpes - Manchester London Road, headed by B1 4-6-0 No. 61160.
