Direct Rail Services Class 37/6 No. 37608 stands at Hadfield with the 17:34 Derby RTC to Crewe C.S. test train on 1st February 2016. Running in top and tail mode with 37606, the train consisted of a single Network Rail vehicle, overhead line test coach No. 975091. The train had arrived at Hadfield behind 37606 a few minutes earlier and 37608 would lead the train on the short journey to Glossop from where 37606 would again lead on the run back towards Manchester. Fortunately, the train was running around 50 minutes early, reaching Hadfield ahead of the final passenger train arrival of the day, and thus meaning the station lights were still on.
