Settle to Carlisle Line

Departs –

From .

Join us for a great winter's day out to remember aboard our heritage train which will take you on a scenic journey through Cumbria to the border city of Carlisle.

Departing Scarborough around 06:30 we make our way through York and across the Pennines with diesel in charge to Preston where our steam engine awaits to take over for the run to Carlisle.

We now enjoy the sight and smell of steam as we thunder along the West Coast Main Line with stunning views to the mountains of the English Lake District. Our engine will have to work hard as it hauls its heavyload over some of the steepest inclines on English rails which confront us on our way north.

After a break of around two hours in Carlisle, with its pedestrianised shopping centre, Castle and cathedral to enjoy, we return with diesel in charge over the West Coast Mainline and across the Pennines to home stations.

Premier Dining Settle to Carlisle Line passengers will be served a full English breakfast with complimentary Buck's Fizz plus elevenses or light lunch (depending on finalised timings), on the outward journey. A delicious four course evening dinner preceded by canapés and Champagne will be served on the return journey.

Premier First Class passengers will be served pastries on the outward leg and a savoury of the day followed by cake will be served on the return journey. To accompany this there will be a complimentary service of tea and coffee.

Standard and First Class passengers will have access to a buffet for the purchase of tea, coffee and light refreshments.You are also welcome to bring your own refreshments or indeed a tasty picnic to enjoy as the countryside passes by!

First Class and Premier Dining passengers can book a private table for a supplement of £20.00 per person.
