Trains will soon be returning to the full length of the Settle and Carlisle Line.
Following 13 months of unprecedented engineering work the line at Eden Brows, near Armathwaite, is once again ready for Northern services.
The section of line was closed in February 2016 following the discovery of a landslip beneath the railway. During the following several weeks a 100-metre section of track subsided by 1.5 metres.
Now, thanks to the hard work of Network Rail, Northern services will once again provide a link between Carlisle and Leeds.
Paul Barnfield, regional director at Northern, said: “The Eden Brows engineering project has been a mammoth task for Network Rail and we are delighted to once again be able to offer a direct train service between Settle and Carlisle.
“It has been a difficult year for those who rely on the Settle-Carlisle line, and we’d like to thank our customers for their patience and look forward to welcoming them back to this iconic stretch of railway.”
The first service to run over the newly re-opened line will be the 5.50am train from Carlisle to Leeds, marking the resumption of the standard timetable on one of England’s most beautiful stretches of railway.
