The Settle-Carlisle Railway

Carlisle


"England's most scenic railway"

The 72 mile route from Settle to Carlisle takes you on a journey through the magnificent Yorkshire Dales, over the 24 arches of the Ribblehead Viaduct before plunging into the longest tunnel at Blea Moor.

Emerging onto the side of Dentdale, the line leaves the Dales at Garsdale and makes it's way through the gentle, lush rolling hills of the Eden Valley, with rural villages and market towns before arriving at the great border city of Carlisle.

"The most beautiful train journey in England"

The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, or "La'al Ratty" as it affectionately known, was opened in 1875 to bring ion ore from Eskdale to the Furness Railway at Ravenglass.

The line was purchased by a preservation society and converted to a narrow gauge of 15 inches.


The railway carries passengers from the old Roman port of Ravenglass seven miles along the Eskdale Valley to Eskdale (Dalegarth).

Trains are hauled by either steam or diesel engines.
