    Steam Trains


    Appleby & Carlisle,
    TR27 9AD


    The popular steam hauled 'Fellsman' runs again every Wednesday in summer 2015 for its 7th season offering a return journey over the spectacular 'Settle to Carlisle Railway'.

    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 down Dent Dale as the train emerges from Blea Moor tunnel and approaching Garsdale you will see sweeping views of Wensleydale - with our engine in full flight we climb at 1 in 100 towards the summit of the line at Ais Gill. Travelling on through the lush Eden Valley to the historic border city of Carlisle where we arrive about 13.00 for a stop of up to two hours.
    Our train will return from Carlisle about 15.30 and time permitting a photographic and water stop will be made at Appleby prior to the long hard climb 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 the pretty village of Glenridding followed with an hour's cruise by historic steamer on England's most beautiful lake, Ullswater. 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.
    Supplement: £22 per person.
