General Information


This excursion is a departure from our usual seaside trips and has been arranged to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the founding of the CLPG and to celebrate the continuing success of The Settle and Carlisle Railway, where we shall stop between 1012-1037 to unveil a plaque in memory of CLPG founder, Oliver Lovell who was instrumental in saving the S&C from closure.

The diesel hauled vintage train will start from Oxford and will pick up at stations along the Cotswold Line as far as Worcester Shrub Hill then will stop, if required, to pick up at Droitwich and Bromsgrove   before travelling to Settle. The same stopping pattern will apply on the return journey.

A guided walk of Carlisle may be available depending on numbers. We will return via the West Coast Main Line, passing Morecombe Bay in the early evening.
