We depart from historic Darlington North Road station as well as Darlington’s main Bank Top station, before continuing south to Thirsk, York and Leeds. Here we turn north and head via Shipley and Skipton before traversing the ‘Roof of England’ and the world famous Settle to Carlisle Railway. With its long climb to the stunning Ribblehead Viaduct, it’s many tunnels and views across the Yorkshire Dales and Eden Valley the Settle and Carlisle is rightly one of the greatest railway journeys in the world.
After a break of around two hours in Carlisle we depart south and this time take the Cumbrian Coast route. We exchange the mountainous scenery of the S&C for the longest coastal route in the UK. The railway line twists and turns as it follows the Irish Sea before turning more inland as we pass Barrow and head for Carnforth. Tornado leaves us here and we are diesel hauled for the return to Darlington setting down at outward stations.
Not to be missed, early booking is recommended for this incredible tour.
