|Along LMS Lines Part 8: Shap to Carlisle (65-mins)||Price £19.75|
In this next part of our detailed journey of the West Coast Main Line from London Euston northwards to Carlisle and Glasgow, we cover the 30 mile descent from SHAP back to sea level at CARLISLE, with many views of steam hauled trains featuring BR Standards, Princess Coronations, Royal Scots, Patriots, Jubilees and freight trains worked by Stanier Black 5s, Stanier 8Fs and BR Standard 9Fs.
Shap Quarry is served by Harrisons Sidings and there is a detailed look at traffic passing and visiting the quarry with 9F and Britannia haulage.On to PENRITH, where more steam power is seen through the station, followed by a DMU trip along the line to KESWICK just before it closed.
We reach CARLISLE, where we see plenty of steam action on service trains to this border city as well as rail tours featuring engines such as A4s off the Waveley Route, preserved Scottish engines and even an ex-GWR Castle!
KINGMOOR depot is visited at length both before and after the building of the goods yard. Full of steam in the 1960s, there is much variety here including visiting engines off the Settle & Carlisle route.
