Vintage Train to Carlisle

At the end of May, me and my mam travelled to Carlisle via the Settle to Carlisle vintage train.  We boarded the train at Darlington and passed through stations at York and Leeds before heading off towards Settle.  

During the journey we were brought pastries and tea to eat whilst we enjoyed the views of the countryside out of the window.  I did try to take a few photos but it’s hard when you’re moving so fast so they might be a bit blurry.

The Settle to Carlisle line is a 73-mile long railway line in northern England. The route takes you through the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines and crosses the impressive Ribblehead Viaduct just outside of Settle.  The stretch of railway was built in the 1870s and has several tunnels (which are quite scary!)
