For information: 

Well done MAD walkers -out on a walk at Edale last Saturday, showing the bad effects on walking, and local businesses, that the train dispute is having. Lets hope the increasing pressure on Northern Rail brings them to their senses and they give up the idea of removing safety critical guards from their trains. The MAD Walkers bit is at about 1hr 23mins and again at 2 hr 21 mins on Breakfast TV 18.1.19. - sorry not currently available
