    Appleby & Carlisle,
    TR27 9AD


    The popular steam hauled 'Fellsman' returns to the spectacular Settle to Carlisle railway for Summer 2014 running on Wednesday's over the roof of England. With great limestone peaks and deep valleys the legendary 'Settle to Carlisle' line is a masterpiece of Victorian engineering including the great 24 arched viaduct at Ribblehead, with time available for sightseeing in Carlisle, or an optional tour of the Lake District by vintage coach and cruise on Ullswater.

    The Settle & Carlisle line is known for its magnificent scenery and steep gradient so our engine will be working hard as we climb to the magnificent Ribblehead Viaduct with stunning views of the three peaks. Passengers get a marvellous view as the train emerges from Blea Moor Tunnel into Dent Dale and approaching Garsdale you will see sweeping views of Wensleydale - Travelling on through the lush Eden valley we continue to the historic border city of Carlisle arriving around 13.00 where there is a sightseeing stop of up to two hours.

    Returning from Carlisle about 15.30 and following a water stop at Appleby we travel over the same spectacular route giving another opportunity to experience the beauty of the high Pennines.

    Ullswater Cruise
    We are pleased to offer an optional tour by leaving the train at Appleby and boarding a classic 1950's coach for a memorable journey through the spectacular and tranquil Lake District to Glenridding followed with an hour's cruise on England's most beautiful lake, Ullswater. Nestling below Helvellyn we sail over the full length of the lake for a return by coach to Appleby where you rejoin the 'Fellsman'. This tour is not suitable for anyone with severe mobility issues, or using a wheelchair and must be pre-booked as seating is strictly limited.
