Story of the Settle - Carlisle Railway by Kingfisher
A new DVD documentary telling the whole story of England’s most famous railway.
This 90-minute DVD covers the building of the line in the 1870s, the operation of the railway through the years to near closure in the 1980s. A unique survey of the line includes the stations and structures throughout the 72-mile long railway. Interviews with the key people involved with the rescue of the railway in the 1980s and those who have overseen the virtual complete renovation of the track and stations in the 21st century which has allowed passenger and freight traffic to boom.
