Woodhead

The commemorative hand-out for those partaking in the Woodhead Wanderer DMU farewell journey over the 1500V electrified route, 10 years after passenger services ended, and shortly before almost total closure of the line between Sheffield and Hadfield took place. The tour started at Sheffield Midland, and initially headed east via Tinsley Yard to Treeton Junction, where it reversed before then running west through the abandoned Sheffield Victoria station to Manchester Piccadilly, with a one hour stop at Dinting to visit the then Dinting Railway Centre en-route. The return journey was via the Hope Valley line, after a 3 hour early afternoon break in Manchester. See 22507.
