DB Cargo Class 67 No. 67005 "Queen's Messenger" crosses Broadbottom Viaduct as it works the 09:41 Peak Forest Up Sidings to Peak Forest Up Sidings route learning trip on 17th August 2020. Formerly part of the Manchester to Sheffield route over Woodhead, the remaining branch to Glossop and Hadfield sees little in the way of locomotive movements, and less so in daylight, so this visit was most welcome. This was actually the second trip along the branch, the loco having run to Hadfield and back to Guide Bridge earlier before completing a repeat run. It is believed DB Cargo will be operating the local Railhead Treatment Trains this autumn, hence the need to train crews along the branch.
