The history of Carlisle as a major railway centre has been well documented over the years, the seven different railway companies that served the city prior to the 1923 Grouping leaving a legacy that lasted well into the 1960s.
This book, although not intended to give an historical account of the subject, provides a photographic record from 1951 until the demise of steam operations in the city on 31st December 1967. It also includes a look at two of the lines with summits most associated with Carlisle, Shap and Ais Gill, both of which saw steam activities end on the same date.
