185117/118 at Guide Bridge on 1st November 2012

Class 185 DMUs Nos. 185117 & 185118 arrive at Guide Bridge on the empty stock working that will form the 1T61 08:55 Guide Bridge to Liverpool Lime Street service on 1st November 2012. Due to a week long blockade at Stalybridge for station and track remodelling, First TransPennine services over the Diggle route were diverted via the Calder Valley, with replacement buses filling the gaps where necessary. Passengers from Stalybridge were taken to Ashton-under-Lyne and Guide Bridge to connect with local train services, but First TransPennine also operated a handful of direct services between Guide Bridge and Liverpool.
