Chesterfield to Carlisle

Departing: Chesterfield, Sheffield, Swinton, Wakefield Kirkgate, Brighouse, Blackburn
Please Note: This trip is part hauled by vintage diesel and part hauled by steam

Join us for a nostalgic day to remember, travelling behind our splendid vintage steam engine along England's most famous railway. From our earlier pick up points we head north behind a vintage diesel engine to Hellifield where after a brief stop and the opportunity to see one of the oldest steam engines in service today, which will take over, this alone is a sight to behold as the engine builds up sufficient steam for the highlight of your journey on the famous Settle to Carlisle line.

The Settle-Carlisle Railway on which we will travel needs no introduction; this breath-taking journey will take you over 20 Viaducts, through 14 tunnels and countless beautiful vistas. The climb over Blea Moor and the crossing of the world renowned Ribblehead Viaduct are arguably the highlights of England´s most scenic Railway.

This round trip will turn at Carlisle and follow the scenic west coast main line to Carnforth where our vintage diesel will take over again for the final legs of the journey.
