    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.

    Great Idea for a route in the northwest of England to the northeast of England and the route would do well with people that have the AP class 156 super sprinter and AP class 158 express sprinter could dovetail games get this route developed as soon as possable

    This route would do great for the transpennie Express services from Manchester Piccadilly and Victoria and Airport to places like York Newcastle Middlesborough and ScarBorough and Cleethorpes
