Whilst it is twelve years since Tornado took to the rails, the locomotive has never worked a train from Hull. In March, we put that right with a wonderful train from stations in the East Riding to the world famous Settle and Carlisle Railway.

We depart from Hull and pick up at Brough, Gilberdyke, Selby and Leeds, we then head north west leaving the urban conurbation behind and breaking out into the Yorkshire Dales.

With its magnificent viaducts, Ribblehead being the most famous, and the number of tunnels needed to pass through the Pennines, the Settle and Carlisle has been described as running across the ‘roof of England’ and with good reason. The scenery is breathtaking through the Dales and carries on as we enter Cumbria and the Eden Valley. It is also a demanding railway for Tornado which will be working hard to the summit at Ais Gill.

On arrival in Carlisle we have around three hours to explore this lovely city with its Castle and museum as well as an extensive pedestrianised city centre. We will then retrace our steps taking a south bound run over the Settle and Carlisle before setting down as outward as we return to Hull.

This train is steam hauled throughout and promises to be a memorable day out with Tornado as the train crosses the spectacular and extensive wilderness of the iconic Settle and Carlisle Railway.
