Platform 4, Hellifield railway station
Platform 4, Hellifield railway station
Viewed from a passing steam-hauled train on The Dalesman excursion to the Settle-Carlisle line, which many of those on the platform were waiting to see as it is here that the diesel engine that had brought the train from York SE3220 : Wakefield Westgate railway station was replaced by the steam engine that would continue the journey to Settle and Carlisle NY6820 : 46115 Scots Guardsman at Appleby railway station.
The Dalesman (charter train)
West Coast Railways operate a summer charter train service between York and Carlisle, called the Dalesman. It is diesel hauled as far as Hellifield (provided with watering facilities for steam locomotives) then steam hauled over the Settle-Carlisle line.
