Photographer's Note

Garsdale station on the Settle to Carlisle railway.
This railway line is possibly the most scenic in England, running through the Yorkshire Dales and gaining a height of 1169 feet.
Construction began in 1869 and took 7 years to build the 72 mile line with it's 17 viaducts and 14 tunnels.
Garsdale is near the summit so is a wild and desolate place but one full of atmosphere.
It was also home to the highest water troughs in the world, where steam trains could take on water as they passed through.

Scanned from negative, adjusted levels and sharpened. I used Neat image to reduce the grain, but it's another poor scan.
