Appleby 1984


(All 8.8.1984 copyright Steve Sainsbury/Rail Thing)

Despite being born in Carlisle I still haven't travelled on this line! I was due to a few years ago via a Steam Dreams railtour but it was cancelled at the last moment. In fact there are still a lot of lines in the UK I've never travelled on. Perhaps I should stop going abroad so much?

But I did stumble upon Appleby station back in 1984 and managed to get these few shots, with the incredible luck that the Warcop freight was in the platform!

We've had our eyes on the Dent station cottages for a while as a potential place to stay, I'd love to spend a day or two travelling on and photographing this route, one we almost lost in the 70s and 80s!
