Settle Railway Station
Settle railway station serves the town of Settle in North Yorkshire, England. It is operated by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services. It is situated at the southern end of the Settle-Carlisle Line 41.5 miles north of Leeds, and 72 miles from Carlisle.
The signal box has been renovated by the Friends of the Settle-Carlisle Line, and is open to visitors at certain times.
The water tower at Settle station, the only original one still remaining, has been converted to make a home. See the links below for more information, including a Chanel 4 ‘Restoraton Man’ program about the conversion.
On friday 11th April 2014 a special train trip travelled from Leeds to York and back to celebrate 25 years since the Settle to Carlisle Railway was saved from closure. At Settle Station children were encouraged to wave something red, as in ‘The Railway Children’.
