Settle Carlisle Timetable

Network Rail is undertaking work following a major landslip just north of Armathwaite.  This work will last for several months.  As a result trains are operating normally between Leeds and Appleby with buses transferring passengers to/from Carlisle, Armathwaite, Lazonby and Langwathby.  

From 27 June, services will operate to Armathwaite, calling at Lazonby and Langwathby.  Please click here for information/timetables from 27 June



Fares are dependent upon the journey being taken. Discounts for national railcards apply. Holders of Dales Railcards also benefit from discounts (subject to conditions of permitted area of travel). Special offers are also available at certain times throughout the year.

A Settle-Carlisle day ranger ticket costing £15 per adult and £7.50 per child is available for travel Leeds or Bradford Forster Square to/from Carlisle.  Railcard discount is available with this ticket (£9.90 per adult).  This ticket is only available to purchase at a booking office or from the conductor on the train.
