Following the last passenger stop at Chorley our train joins the West Coast Main line and passes through Preston, then travelling north past imposing Lancaster Castle we cross the River Lune and at Bolton-le-Sands there are spectacular views across Morecambe Bay toward the Lakeland mountains. At Carnforth we pass the famous station used in the 1945 movie ‘Brief Encounter’ and take the secondary line into open countryside and through dramatic scenery  on the edge of the forest of Bowland towards the beautiful Yorkshire Dales crossing rivers and moorland as we climb through Wennington and Gigglewick to Settle Junction with amazing views of the three peaks. At Hellifield we join the normally freight only line as it crosses the River Ribble through the stunning valley with Pendle Hill, home to the Lancashire witches, towering over the route.

Passing historic Clitheroe and Whalley, we cross the 48 arch viaduct and the engine works hard to climb the taxing Wilpshire Bank with the sounds echoing back from the surrounding hills. Travelling onward through Blackburn on easier gradients we take the line to Leyland and re-join the West Coast main line to our homeward stations.





The train is steam hauled throughout by one of our immaculately restored pool of engines including: the world famous LMS Royal Scot Class, No.46100 ‘Royal Scot’ – West Country Class, No. 34046 ‘Braunton’ – Britannia Pacific Class, No 70000 ‘Britannia’

Winter Cumbrian Mountain Express

Saturday 25th January 2020

https://www.railwaytouring.net/uk-day-trips/the-winter-cumbrian-mountain-express



Travelling outwards over the scenic Settle & Carlisle line to Carlisle, time will be available to explore this historic border city. In the afternoon, we head southwards again, but via the West Coast Main Line over Shap Fells.This will be even more special if there is snow about to enhance the breathtaking scenery of the Pennines. The train will be hauled by 35018 British India Line.

Our special train will depart from Manchester Victoria steam hauled by 35018 British India Line at about 07:30, stopping to collect passengers at Bolton and Blackburn. We head northwards through the Ribble Valley through Clitheroe to Chatburn, where we will make a stop for water.Continuing along the Ribble Valley, we pass through Hellifield and reach Settle Junction, where the Settle & Carlisle line commences its arduous 72- mile climb over the Pennines.  Train Timings

The Winter Cumbrian Mountain Express
Saturday 8th February 2020
London Euston at around 07:10  - to Carnforth, where we change motive power to a steam locomotive from the Carnforth pool of locomotives. Leaving Carnforth, our steam locomotive will be working hard when we climb the first severe gradient up to Grayrigg. We then travel through the beautiful Lune Gorge to Tebay, gaining speed for the ascent to Shap. This well-known section of the WCML has a gradient of 1 in 75 and, in the former days of steam locomotives, banking engines from Tebay were often used to assist trains. After crossing the Cumbrian Fells we descend to Penrith, and then head for Carlisle. There will be around three hours in Carlisle, providing time to explore this ancient ‘Border’ city with its castle, cathedral, Tullie House Museum, and shopping centre.

We leave Carlisle and join the Settle & Carlisle Railway,  Hellifield and Clitheroe to Preston where we say goodbye to our steam locomotive. Train
