The introduction of railways during the early 19th century into the remote counties of Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire north of the sands transformed the mainly rural communities. Such industries as already existed were able to expand and new ones could exploit the area and a new supply of labour. Most importantly, tourism grew rapidly in the Lake District as the new north-south rail links transported thousands of holiday maers into the area. Through a series of archival pictures and documents, this book traces the rise and slow decline of the Cumbrian railways.

This work displays a large number of previously unseen railway photographs from the remote county of Cumbria that show life on lines that are still in use and later what has now disappeared from the railway scene. This volume contains an opportunity to see a new collection of pictures of these lost railway lines in action with many nostalgic views of railways destroyed by shortsighted planning. That many of these lost lines are now being restored surely says much about their closure. The plans for restoration now include the Waverley line, the Appleby to Kirkby Stephen 'North Eastern' line and the Penrith to Keswick line.

This book explores Wordsworth's extraordinary influence on the tourist landscapes of the Lake District throughout the age of railways, motorcars and the First World War. It reveals how Wordsworth's response to railways was not a straightforward matter of opposition and protest; his ideas were taken up by both advocates and opponents of railways, and through their controversies had a surprising impact on the earliest motorists as they sought a language to describe the liberty and independence of their new mode of transport. Once the age of motoring was underway, the outbreak of the First World War encouraged British people to connect Wordsworth's patriotic passion with his wish to protect the Lake District as a national heritage - a transition that would have momentous effects in the interwar period, when popular motoring paradoxically brought a vogue for open-air activities and a renewal of romantic pedestrianism. With the arrival of global tourism, preservation of the cultural landscape of the Lake District became an urgent national and international concern. This book explores how patterns of tourist behaviour and environmental awareness changed in the century of popular tourism, examining how Wordsworth's vision and language shaped modern ideas of travel, self-reliance, landscape and environment, cultural heritage, preservation and accessibility.

The Highland Railway has a special place in the eyes of many who have an interest in railways. Whether it is the romantic scenery, the long lines running through sparsely populated country or the characteristics of its locomotives that draws people is hard to say. The railway was a lifeline to the country during the twentieth century, and nowadays provides one of the most popular tourist lines in Scotland. Through the selection of over 200 archive photographs and their captions, this book depicts the rich scenery and history of the Highland Railway which stretched from Perth to Inverness and then further north to Wick and west to Kyle of Lochalsh. It shows how the train services met the needs of scattered communities in all weathers throughout the year; how the annual influx of tourists in the summer months was handled; and how the lines survived several attempts to close them by continually adapting their role. This book will be a treat for anyone who remembers the golden age of the railway and for anyone keen to capture the essence of those bygone days.
