Issue Cover

Rail  |  Issue 821  


TWENTY-FOLD S&C PASSENGER SURGE
More than five thousand, five hundred passengers travelled on steam-hauled timetabled trains on the Settle- Carlisle Line on February 14-16. Documents seen by RAIL suggest that there was a twenty fold increase in usual passenger numbers over the three days. Under the banner I LOVE S&C, Northern used 60163 Tornado (running on DB Cargo’s safety case) to operate timetabled passenger services between Appleby and Skipton. Organised by Northern, DB Cargo, Network rail, the A1 Locomotive Society, the Friends of the Settle & Carlisle Line (FoSCL) and with support from RAIL and our sister title Steam Railway, the event was designed to draw attention to the reopening of the
entire S&C, which has been closed since February 2016 following a landslip at Eden Brows (RAIL 795).
Published fortnightly, RAIL brings you the best news, comment and analysis covering the full spectrum of rail industry activity - from Government policy and involvement to operations, maintenance and services provided by Network Rail, train operators and the wider industry.
