With the Midlands Grand National happening at Uttoxeter its the busiest day of the year for the Crewe to Derby line and the single coach Class 153s usually used on the line seem to be running in quintuple formation with 5 trains coupled together. I reckon there will also be a Class 222 being used as well. I think there is an extra train this evening as well. I would not want to be the guard at Uttoxeter station tonight with very large crowds of drunk people.

Also with it being the first day of the season at Alton Towers there is a large amount of theme park passengers as well.

Yep that was it, there was a large amount of Staffordshire Police at Uttoxeter station until very late and quite a bit of trouble tonight.
