One of those 'missed opportunity' sets of pictures, in my opinion anyway! I could have made more of this location, which I passed every five weeks, but this was the only time I ever bothered. These were taken on the scenic section of the West Coast Main Line which covered similar (if less rugged) ground to its neighbour, the Settle and Carlisle, which ran about twenty miles to the east. Most of the trains were loco hauled back then of course, and I'm sure if I'd sat around for a couple of hours I'd have got a lot more!
