Need Train Info - Try Arriva Trains Wales

Settle Town Council produces a leaflet, perhaps delivered to every household in Settle, entitled Information for Residents and Visitors.   It tells you what Settle Town Council is responsible for and what is down to Craven District Council and North Yorkshire County Council.

Its back page is devoted to useful Contacts and numbers - including Train Service Info.   The thought is there but the info may be a bit misleading so far as Train Services are concerned - see second picture.   It recommends that you try Arriva Trains Wales * for Settle train information.

* For Blog followers in Russia, the Ukraine and China who may not appreciate the joke, please be aware that Wales is another country.   It is far far away from Yorkshire.   Which is where Settle is.

Here are the major differences between Wales and Yorkshire:

                                 WALES                                                  YORKSHIRE

Language                  Welsh                                                      English, of sorts

Iconic headgear         Pointy hats (F)                                          Flat caps (M)

Patron Saint               St David                                          Sir Geoffrey Boycott

Famous Mountain     Snowdon                                                    Pen-y-Ghent

Farm animals             Sheep                                                         Sheep

Ground made of         Coal                                                           Coal

(hang on, this comparison is going off the rails)

Most famous son        Neil Kinnock                                              God

Now you've got it OK?

  1. Maybe it's part of a plan for Wales to take over Yorkshire, starting with Settle Town Council. Have you noticed how popular Rugby is and there seems to be a lot of daffodils starting to surround the town. The flower pot festival may even be a Trojan horse(or Welsh pit pony).


Do please leave comments. If nothing else it shows that there is somebody out there.
