A few pictures of the famous Ribblehead viaduct on the Settle to Carlisle railway.
The distinctive shape of Ingleborough in the distance.
Ribblehead viaduct and Whernside taken from the eastern side.
A couple of shots from the western side. This would be a good place to capture a steam train passing. Unfortunately not today though!
A brief stop on a day out in Yorkshire.
The famous Ribblehead viaduct. The mountain in the background is Whernside, one of the Yorkshire three peaks.
With snow on the ground I could not resist a short stop to photograph the viaduct.
Just needed a steam train to make the perfect picture!
To celebrate the reopening of the Settle to Carlisle line the flying Scotsman did a return run on 31st March. We went to Ribblehead to catch the train on its return journey.
We finally got to see a steam train crossing the Ribblehead viaduct. There were quite a lot of people out to see the train.
What a great sight!
A couple of closer views.
It was all over too quickly.
