Running from Sheffield to Manchester via the rugged landscape of the Pennines, the Woodhead Line was electrified in 1955 with the Class 76 electric locomotive built especially for the job. A major feature of the route is the Woodhead Tunnel system, comprising three tunnels (the third being added specifically for the electrification of the line) to enable the line to run through the hilly landscape of the northern Peak District.
