Settle - Carlisle railway line – Old pictures 

The line has changed quite a bit since the 1970s when it first came to my attention. Then it was in decline and being deliberately neglected prior to the attempted closure, but since its reprieve in 1989 it has seen a lot of investment and development. The pictures here were taken between 1976 and 1989.
