The Fellsman

A scenic 260 mile steam hauled journey over the world famous Settle to Carlisle Railway with time for sightseeing in Appleby or Carlisle. Save 5% when you book online or by telephone.

Introduction - The Fellsman

Fellsman - Settle to Carlisle steam train
The popular 'Fellsman' returns in 2011 for its third summer season running every Wednesday over Britain's most spectacular railway - the legendary 'Settle to Carlisle' line - with great limestone peaks and deep valleys we travel over the roof of England including the great 24 arched viaduct at Ribblehead on this masterpiece of Victorian engineering, with time available for sightseeing in either Appleby or Carlisle.

The train is steam hauled throughout and the locomotive will be chosen from the pool of engines based at Carnforth including: LMS Royal Scot Class 46115 'Scots Guardsman' - LMS Stanier 8F 48151 - LMS Jubilee Class 5690 'Leander' - LMS Stanier Black Five 44932.

The Settle & Carlisle line is known for its magnificent scenery and steep gradient so our engine will be working hard as we climb to the magnificent Ribblehead Viaduct with stunning views of the three peaks. Passengers will get a marvellous view as the train emerges from Blea Moor Tunnel into Dent Dale and approaching Garsdale you will see sweeping views of Wensleydale - with our engine in full flight we climb at 1 in 100 towards the summit of the line. Travelling on through the Eden Valley to the pretty Westmorland market town of Appleby there is usually an opportunity of leaving the train here for a four hour break; or continuing to the historic border city of Carlisle where we have a stop of up to two hours.

Our train will return from Carlisle mid afternoon and following a photographic and water stop at Appleby (time permitting) we travel over the same spectacular route giving another opportunity to experience the beauty of the high Pennines.
