Let’s Celebrate the Re-Opening to Carlisle

The Settle-Carlisle line has re-opened to Carlisle

Network Rail and Story Contracting have undertaken a huge repair project at Eden Brows on time and their efforts are applauded.

We will be working hard to spread this news and encourage locals and visitors back on to the line and to the region.  Our new promotional leaflet is currently being distributed around the north of England and you can also view it here.

Keep an eye on this website or on our facebook and twitter for updates on the re-opening and special events throughout 2017.


The recent initiative by train operator, Northern, to use Tornado to haul services Appleby to/from Skipton was a huge success.  Currently, we are unaware of any plans to repeat this opportunity.
