The problem for a long time has been that the Hazel Grove to Manchester line is electrified whereas the Buxton to Hazel Grove line is not. I imagine the electric trains were probably re-assigned to somewhere down south and we likely got there old diesel stock in return.

However, on a more positive note, the electrification of the Buxton to Hazel Grove section is being talked about as a priority for the investment following the devolution package. With a new operator in Arriva taking over the Northern franchise, we could see significant change.
