I hadn't noticed until uploading the picture that a timber train has been stabled in the Ribblehead Quarry siding and that there are stacks of timber alongside the siding awaiting loading (you may need to view the high res version of the image to see the detail). See also SD7681 : Trains passing at Blea Moor. Anyone know what this is for?

My thanks to Ian Taylor for the following:

Apparently, the timber is exported from Ribblehead to Chirk (NE Wales) by rail. The loaded train crosses the viaduct for the loco to run round the train, before going south.
