The decline of Cumbria's railway network began long before Dr. Beeching, and during the 1950's and 1960's it was feared that almost all of the railway lines of the area would disappear all together! But in recent years it has been clear that an amazing recovery has taken place, with the reopening of many stations and the restoration of many freight services, including an upgraded West Coast main line and much improved high speed passenger services.
Once upon a time however, there was a far bigger network which operated at a much more relaxed - and refined - pace. Featuring around 52 superb period black and white photographs, this book recalls the sights of that bygone era, including the long-lost Solway Viaduct, the Settle and Carlisle route, and the many rural stations that were once the lifeblood of Cumbrian communities
