Along the way there's a huge amount to see, and the knowledgable and fascinating commentary explains what you're looking at alongside a history of how the line came to be built and how it nearly closed.
Five High Definition cameras are mounted with care so you get the best view on the train. And our international award-winning team brings decades of broadcast experience to the production, ensuring you're guaranteed a truly professional experience.
Along the way you'll see all of the iconic points on the Settle-Carlisle line. The quarter-mile long Ribblehead Viaduct spans Batty Moss in a gentle curve which leads us to the mile and a half long Blea Moor Tunnel. There's the stunning beauty of the upland fells which provided so much difficulty for the 19th century Navigators who built the line by hand. And there's the charm of stations in far-flung places like Dent and Garsdale - the latter is the highest mainline station in England. These working stations contrast with those at Little Salkeld and Cumwhinton which remain frozen in time, looking little different now from how they must have been on the day they closed to passengers.
A Journey on the Settle-Carlisle Railway offers two soundtracks to choose from. The commentary track gives you everything - the sound of the train accompanied by an informative, knowledgable explanation of what you're seeing, and provides the historical background of this great Midland Railway feat of engineering. Or if you prefer to watch and travel in peace without the commentary, simply turn it off using your remote control. The decision is yours.
