The Settle – Carlisle is one of the most famous railways in the country, if not the world. Running through the stunning countryside of the Yorkshire Dales and the Cumbrian Fells, you cross Victorian stone viaducts and travel through long tunnels, both feats of engineering in their day. The line is still an active part of the UK rail network and has services running 7 days a week all through the year. There are also Steam Train excursions along the line, such as The Dalesman and The Fellsman
