David Sampson popped in today. David is in charge of the splendid team of trolley staff on the Settle-Carlisle trains who make the long journey to and from Carlisle so enjoyable, whatever the weather. He has a mischievous sense of humour and calls himself 'The Tart with the Cart' - and signed our visitors book as such.
David doesn't just sell things from his trolley - he engages passengers in banter and conversation so gets a very good idea about why people are on the train. Ever since the Restoration Man programme was shown David has met a 'tremendous' number of people on his trains who have come on the line 'to see the water tower at Settle'.
That is a result.
