We are all now in lockdown.  The shops at Settle and Appleby stations will remain closed until further notice.  

You may still order products online: your orders will be dispatched but delivery may take a little longer than usual

Fulfilment of Dales Railcard orders will depend on whether any staff are allowed to go in to the Appleby office - if you'd like to order one please Contact Us for further information.

Membership renewals and applications, and donations are not affected.  They are administered in a COVID secure environment away from the shops.


We took advantage of the earlier lockdown to upgrade our e-commerce software and to simplify and improve our online retail offering.

  • You can use the FoSCL Webshop to join the Friends of the Settle-Carlisle Line and to renew an existing membership.
  • FoSCL members can still purchase a Dales Railcard, even if they live outside the area normally covered by this fantastic money-saving product.
  • As ever, we welcome donations, especially as our income is likely to be significantly reduced in the coming months due to a reduced footfall in the physical shops.
  • In addition, you can choose from a carefully selected range of books, calendars, DVDs, greetings cards, postcards, clothing and miscellaneous products. Some of these items are unique to the Settle-Carlisle Railway and, to make these easier to find, we have gathered them together on a Bespoke Giftware page (as well as including them in the normal catalogue sections).

Please come on in and have a look around. If you like what you see, please do make a purchase as the proceeds from webshop sales help us to fund a wide range of projects associated with the Settle-Carlisle Railway:
