170303/306/307 at Edale on 3rd July 2016

TransPennine Express Class 170 DMUs Nos. 170303/306/307 pass Edale as they work the 1Z70 09:25 Manchester Airport to Cleethorpes outward leg of the "TPE Class 170 Farewell" railtour on 3rd July 2016. With the remaining members of the TPE Class 170 fleet moving south to join their former classmates at Chiltern, the Branch Line Society organised this final send off railtour which had earlier passed Peak Forest whilst taking in the freight only line from Chinley to Buxton. Upon reaching Cleethorpes, and having explored some of the trackwork at the DMU servicing facility there, the tour concluded with a non-stop run back to Manchester Piccadilly.
