Section 1: Carlisle - Workington
After departing Carlisle we pass another 108 on the down. A coal train stands in Maryport Open Cast as we pass and then call at Flimby. At Workington we let the first unit continue after the driver has cleaned the windscreen.

Joining the next southbound service we see Class 20s on a weed killing train and a Class 155 unit in the yard. After calling at Harrington we travel over the single line on the sea wall to Parton. After a signal check we enter Whitehaven bay platform. We see our unit return on a Carlisle service and then the next down service arrives and departs.
Section 3: Whitehaven - Barrow-in-Furness
Joining the driver in the cab we enter Whitehaven tunnel and head towards the light of Corkickle and Braystones. After Sellafield we see the green 108 on a down service as well as 4472 Flying Scotsman in the yard. From Drigg to Bootle we travel over the down line due to relaying on the up. Back on the up line, and back in the cab, we stop at more stations before finally arriving at Barrow-in-Furness.
