New Opportunities for the Settle-Carlisle Railway…

Since Sunday the 1st of March 2020, the Northern franchise has been overtaken by the Government. Whilst many changes are taking place behind-the-scenes, the newly named Northern Trains are working with local leaders, industry and passenger representatives to deliver a plan of improvements after the first 100 days of operation.

The Settle-Carlisle Railway Development Company welcome this change and look forward to working closely with Northern Trains on developing service improvements for the world-renowned Leeds-Settle-Carlisle railway.

Amended Timetables for the Leeds-Settle-Carlisle & Leeds-Bentham-Morecambe routes…

Due to a series of engineering works and platform improvements at Leeds station, some travel times have been amended across the Leeds-Settle-Carlisle and Leeds-Bentham-Morecambe rail lines.

The amended timetables began on Monday 17th February and will remain in operation until Saturday 16th March 2020. After this date, the new Summer/Autumn timetable will begin (timetable to be announced).
