Looking quite small on Longwood Viaduct, Freightliner Class 70 017 leads 4 container flat wagons from Hunslet Yard in Leeds to Crewe's Basford Hall. This move is to transfer wagons that have undergone work or that have been stored to Crewe where they will be added into intermodal rakes for Freightliners container flows. This is the first time i've seen a 70 on the Huddersfield line so it was worth going out for as they are quite uncommon now with most being stored. (They were built 2008 onwards so not good that they are stored).

Longwood Viaduct situated on the main Trans Pennine route was built in the 1800s still carries a lot of passenger traffic as well as the occasional freight.

I.e. a freight train is a rarity in this place?

Yes most of the freight goes via a different line. This line is too busy with passenger trains for a lot of regular freight.
