The Anonymous Widower

From Sellafield To Carlisle

I continued up the Cumbrian Coast Line to Carlisle taking pictures as I went.

Note that in some of the pictures, you can actually see the Isle of Man. Or I could on the train!

The Cumbrian Coast Line can’t be the easiest line in the country on which to make money, but according to this article on the Northern Rail web site, they are adding extra trains to Sellafield. So at least they’re trying.

Although there are some large employers along the line, surely such a picturesque line should be able to get extra passengers like families and walkers, who might want to spend time in the area. One factor going in their favour is the extra services out of Preston to Manchester, Liverpool and Blackpool. These will make it easier to get people to the line, especially if they ran decent trains on the line, with perhaps a trolley.

At least the line is a Community Rail Line and their web site is cumbriancoastline.co.uk.
