Sheffield, Manchester, Pennines, Holland, Woodhouse Remembered B&R Vol 90 DVD
A video for electric traction fans. Not entirely, for steam was seen
occasionally on the route especially west of Dinting, But this is the
story of ·the 1500v dc system across the Pennines from Sheffield to
Manchester. Filmed mainly in the 1960’s, you will see the EM1’s and
EM2’s as they were in their green livery as much as they were in blue
towards the end. Passenger services are there throughout the route.
Class 506 units are seen on the Glossop service and there is coverage of
the EM2 class in Holland. All told a pretty comprehensive film of this
period of electrification on an ex-LNER line. One day it may reopen
again although not at 1500v dc! 60 minutes.
