On the left GBRF Class 66/7 No. 66788 'Locomotion 15' tackles the bank up to Oakenshaw South Junction from Calder Bridge Junction with a Middleton Towers to Monk Bretton Redfearns loaded sand train diverted this way due to a landslide between Knottingley and Pontefract. Meanwhile on the right TPE Class 185 units Nos. 185125 and 185130 form the 14.35 service from Manchester Piccadilly to Sheffield again diverted due to the closure of the Hope Valley route.
