The Settle Carlisle Railway Development Company invites you to join us on our celebratory 30th Anniversary Steam Train on 17 September 2022. 

Starting from Carlisle, the steam locomotive will travel along the iconic Settle-Carlisle line, picking up passengers at Carlisle, Appleby, Settle, and Skipton to York. 

On our journey, we will take in the Eden Valley, the Yorkshire three peaks (Pen-Y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside) and the Ribblehead Viaduct. 

Our destination is the historic city of York where passengers will be able to spend a few hours leisure time, where you can step 2,000 years into the past as you wander the Gothic halls of York Minster Cathedral; delve into the city’s Viking past at the Jorvi;, or explore history of a different kind at the National Railway Museum. You can also dip into the eclectic array of independent boutiques nestled in the postcard-pretty 13th century timber buildings of The Shambles – York’s most beautiful street. 

After our break in York, we’ll return to Carlisle and retrace our earlier route.
