The Huddersfield line from Leeds to Manchester was opened in stages from 1849, starting with the Huddersfield to Stalybridge stretch in August of that year. With stopping Leeds to Huddersfield services run by Northern as well as fast and semi-fast TransPennine Express services to Manchester Victoria, Picadilly and Airport, as well as some extensions to Liverpool Lime Street. The variation of stock on the line provides opportunity to run varying classes of trains on services, be it a Class 155 coupled to an Ex Great Western Railway Class 150/1 or a Class 158 running alone on the Huddersfield to Leeds services. Class 185s would run Leeds to Manchester and Liverpool TPE services, and maybe even the inclusion of the new Nova 3 Mk5/Class 68 sets which will enter service in the Autumn of this year. The Line has plenty of varying gradients which would keep the journey challenging, as well as some incredible views en route.
