The Wensleydale Railway
The Wensleydale railway is a preserved railway in North Yorkshire. The line currently runs 22 miles (35 km) between Northallerton on the East Coast Main Line and Redmire. This makes the line the longest heritage railway in Great Britain. Occasional freight services and excursions travel the full length of the line, however regular passenger services currently only operate between Leeming Bar and Redmire, a distance of 16.5 miles (27 km). Formerly the line ran from Northallerton to Garsdale on the Settle-Carlisle Railway. However the track between Redmire and Garsdale was lifted and several bridges and viaducts were demolished in the past. (Wikipedia)
