The Stockport shuttle
The Stockport shuttle
During the late 1970s and early 1980s, mainline trains from Yorkshire to Manchester were still running into Victoria. The hourly shuttle service between Stockport and Stalybridge, operated by class 104 units such as this one, was an important link for passengers between Yorkshire and Cheshire, making for a quicker journey than having to cross the city centre to Piccadilly.
