Stand by for Tornado

This magnificent machine will be hauling regular passenger trains through Settle next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.   Here it is at Shrewsbury during the weekend.

Definitely click to enlarge

The first time in 50 years that steam has hauled scheduled services in the UK.   And it stops at SETTLE!

Here is its timetable:

Almost certainly there will still be places to be had at Settle for the first and last trains of the day.

Normal day to day fares.    How about a day in Leeds, Bradford, Saltaire etc, departing and arriving in style?   Could be another 50 years before this happens again - if ever.
