RIBBLEHEAD - 3rd March 1984|
45126 on a Carlisle-Chesterfield return charter. This was a charter train I travelled on back in 1984 from Chesterfield via Newcastle, Carlisle and the S & C. It was billed as an opportunity to travel over the Settle and Carlisle line before closure! Fortunately it turned out to be premature.
The platform on this side has been removed to make way for a siding, meaning that if you got off here you couldn't get back on and go back the way you came!! Unbelievable! Still, that is now history, and the down platform has been replaced, and very nice it looks too.
