The Settle & Carlisle railway over the roof of England is without doubt one of the most spectacular in the country. The author first found the line by cycling a 100-mile round trip from home. This and many more cycling adventures - including a day in Ais Gill signal box, a night at Garsdale troughs and exploring for the first time the line from Garsdale to Keighley - are all featured, as are trips to Alston, Kirkby Stephen East and Leeds.
The weather always plays a part in any visit to the Settle & Carlisle and this book has it all! From warm sunny days to a cutting icy wind and snow, all were braved to record the final days of BR steam operation.
On 11 August 1968, when the final BR steam train ran, all enthusiasts thought that was the end of main-line steam. However, preserved steam had already ventured over the Settle & Carlisle in 1967 - a fascinating period in history, now forgotten, where immaculate preserved locos worked alongside work-stained engines operated by British Railways. However, a BR steam ban brought this to an end.
It is truly remarkable that the Settle & Carlisle line survived closure and, following the lifting of the steam ban, preserved steam engines have now battled to Ais Gill summit for the last 40 years.
The author, like many other people, joined the steam preservation movement and this book includes his involvement with the overhaul and running of Blue Peter and high-speed runs to Ais Gill summit. A Passion for Steam on the Settle & Carlisle Line is therefore an incredible journey through time showing how steam operation on the route has changed, and written by someone who know the line so well.
