Details

Following the great success of the two 2019 KWVR ‘Bahamas’ Railtours, we have decided to launch a third tour so that all our wonderful enthusiasts are able to have another chance to enjoy a trip over the Settle & Carlisle Railway behind 45596.

Our special train will depart Oxenhope, terminus of the KWVR, at 08.15, stopping to collect passengers at Haworth and Keighley on the KWVR and Skipton. On leaving Skipton, the train heads to Hellifield and on to Settle Junction where the climb over the famous Settle & Carlisle Railway begins. The Settle & Carlisle Line, one of the most spectacular and best loved stretches of railway line in Britain boasts the highest railway summit in England at Ais Gill, 1,169 feet above sea level. We pass over numerous viaducts, including the most famous of them all, Ribblehead, and plunge into tunnels on our climb to the summit and descent towards our destination. There are magnificent views across the north Pennines and to the peaks of Pen-y-ghent to the east, Ingleborough and Whernside to the west.

We stay in the border city of Carlisle for approximately two and half hours, providing time to visit the castle, cathedral, museum and shops, or spend your time at leisure in one of the coffee shops, restaurants or bars that are aplenty in the city centre.

Due to operational restrictions, the return journey from Carlisle will terminate at Keighley. A connecting steam hauled service from Keighley will return customers to Haworth and Oxenhope.

Rail Route: Oxenhope-Carlisle round trip

Duration: 12 hours approx.
