The decline of Cumbria's railway network began long before Dr. Beeching and during the 50s and 60s it was feared that it would disappear all together. By the 1990s however, it was clear that an amazing recovery was underway, with the reopening of many stations and the restoration of many freight services. Today, there is 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 photographs, this volume 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.
