Sorry if it's already posted on another thread (looked and didn't see one). It's been announced that RCS will be running the Staycation Express using an HST set between Skipton and Carlisle this Summer, the full S&C line rather than termination at Appleby as last Summer. Personally, I think a good idea to use a HST set just to be different to last year and appeal to more people. Went on it last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. Can't wait to do it on a HST.
Refurbished HST plan revealed for S&C Staycation Express
This year’s ‘Staycation Express’ will use a refurbished High Speed Train and run the full length of the Settle-Carlisle Line.
The final plans are being confirmed by Rail Charter Services, which last year used locomotive-hauled trains between Skipton and Appleby. This year, the plan is for the HST to operate the 0930 Appleby-Skipton, 1130 Skipton-Carlisle, 1500 Carlisle-Skipton and 1730 Skipton-Appleby, although the timings are yet to be finalised.
The trains will run daily except for Fridays between mid-July and early September (dates still to be determined).
