The railway between Manchester and Buxton has reopened less than two weeks after a landslip closed the line.
Up to 6,000t of earth and material were dislodged and washed away after the flash floods during when around 5cm of rain fell in two hours.
Services resumed on Saturday (25 June) following work which involved rebuilding a section of embankment and removing track and ballast near Middlewood station.
“After completing the emergency repairs, the railway though Middlewood reopened on Saturday morning. The heavy rain that we experienced two weeks ago caused a significant amount of damage that required extensive work. I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while we carried out these essential repairs,” said Network Rail area director Terry Strickland.
