Railway north from Garsdale
Railway north from Garsdale
Garsdale used to be named Hawes Junction and was very busy in the early days of the 20th century. Because of the steep climb to Ais Gill from Carlisle extra engines were provided to pilot expresses from Carlisle and they were detached here and returned to Carlisle, There was a turntable here which had a stockade around it to prevent the winds having an effect on the turning of the engines.
