Hadfield sign

Hadfield is one of the two ends of the line to Glossop, and depending on the time of day trains from Manchester reverse either here or there before continuing to the other. It wasn't always that way, of course; it's the truncated end of old electrified Woodhead route under the Pennines to Sheffield.
