DalesRail Sunday 30 May 2021

The DalesRail service on Sunday 30 May 2021 will be disrupted due to engineering work in the Carlisle area. DalesRail will start earlier from Blackpool North at 08:12 and will only operate as far as Hellifield where a connecting train will head north departing at 09:59, but only as far as Appleby where a replacement bus will go forward to Carlisle.

The return journey will be a bus from Carlisle (14:35) to Appleby and the the 16:02 service to Hellifield which will connect with the 17:34 departure to Blackpool North arriving at 19:13. Visit for full details of these changes.
