Story of Settle-Carlisle Railway Dvd

This programme studies the line in every respect from its construction through to its operation in the 21st century. Filmed along the whole length of the railway, the dvd has an in-depth look at the many stations and structures along the 72-mile route and interviews railwaymen and others associated with its long and eventful history. Detailed sequences at Ribblehead viaduct and how they built the tunnels and viaducts on the line.

We hear how the line was saved in the 1980s and survey the run down of the line in the 1970s and 80s with archive of the diesel-hauled services. An interview with the BR manager sent in to close the railway in 1983, but who turned it round and saved the line!

We hear from the Network Rail director how they have refurbised the railway over the past ten years. Archive films from the days of steam along the railway and operation of signal boxes in the years when the line was threatened with closure.

Altogether, 90 minutes of concise history with a very positive ending with passenger and freight operation at their highest level for decades. All the latest freight operations and coverage of the walk over the viaduct arranged for the public.

Approx. 90 minutes.
