All aboard for DalesRail 2009 !

May 12, 2009

This year’s “Dales Rail” special services have started running again on Sundays from Preston and Blackburn up to Carlisle via Clitheroe, Settle and the world-famous Settle-Carlisle railway. The trains are specially timed to allow a good day trip including a few hours walking on the moors or visiting historic towns like Appleby.

Northern have special “DalesRail Duo” fares available offering half-price travel for a second adult … see the DalesRail website for full details.

Of course, there are still no trains from Walkden on Sundays, but it is possible to start your journey at Bolton and change onto the Dales Rail service at Blackburn, or travel from Wigan to meet the Dales Rail train at Preston. There is also parking available at Dales Rail stations like Bamber Bridge.

A trolley service is provided on most trains and there’s also a series of guided walks from the trains if you’re unfamiliar with the beautiful, remote areas the train serves.

For full details see the Dales Rail website.
