Ruswarp
Ruswarp (pronounced "russup") belonged to Graham Nuttall the first Secretary of the Friends of the Settle-Carlisle Line (FOSCL) which was formed to campaign against the proposed closure of the line. Ruswarp's paw print was put on his own objection as a fare-paying passenger.

The line was finally saved in 1989. In January 1990 Graham and Ruswarp went missing in the Welsh mountains. On 7th April 1990 a lone walker found Graham's body, by a mountain stream. Nearby was Ruswarp, so weak that the 14-year-old dog had to be carried off the mountain. He had stayed with his master's body for eleven winter weeks.

The RSPCA awarded Ruswarp their Animal Medallion and collar for 'vigilance' and their Animal Plaque for 'intelligence and courage'. He survived long enough to attend Graham's funeral.
