Agreement secures future Railcam coverage on the Settle & Carlisle Line

We are delighted to report that an agreement has been reached with Settle & Carlisle Railway Properties Ltd, for not one but two of the S&C cameras to continue.

Sadly, that means that the Kirkby Stephen and Ribblehead Station cameras will cease broadcasting immediately. The broadband at Kirkby Stephen has been so poor of late, that we had considered its removal anyway. A formal contract is now in place to allow the best two cameras – Ribblehead Viaduct and Horton-in-Ribblesdale – to continue indefinitely with minor adjustments to satisfy all parties involved.

Additionally, we are now in discussions with Settle & Carlisle Railway Properties Ltd about the possibility of adding cameras in the future. We already have a number of options being explored with them and other hosts, so we fully expect that there will be additional cameras in the coming weeks and months.

We would like to thank our friends on the S&C – FoSCL, The S&C Trust and now Settle & Carlisle Railway Properties Ltd, for partnering with us to provide these cameras over the past six years… and into the future.

Adrian Quine – Executive Director of Settle & Carlisle Railway Properties Ltd said: “We are delighted to be working with RailCam UK to continue to bring a small snapshot of this wonderful railway to people at home”

  1. That is great news regarding cameras to continue on the S&C Well done and thanks to all involved.

  2. What a shame we are losing the two cams, both of which I enjoy. Will the ‘minor adjustments’ mean sound back on the viaduct cam?

  3. I want railcam over Settle Carlisle line for the spotters to watch not just freight ,but for the charters

  4. So sad to see the two cameras go, but good news that you have secured the other two.
    Look forward to other cameras being sited along the line.

    Thank you

  5. I have enjoyed “dropping in” to view the trains it has made the past year bearable with all the restrictions – a big thank you to all concerned

  6. Settle and Carlisle Well that it two of my favourite cams on here gone I won’t be subscribing to railcam anymore. bye bye

    1. That is completely up to you Richard, but I will add that you have never needed a subscription to Railcam to watch any of the Settle & Carlisle Line cameras, they have always been free to view on both Railcam and FoSCL websites.

  7. Thank you and well done for securing the Ribblehead viaduct and the Horton-in-Ribblesdale web cams.

    No idea of the technicalities/power supply/installation requirements for a live streaming web cam but the signal boxes would have a good view of the line approaching the stations but not in the direction of the platforms to avoid GDPR issues.

    Hoping that Garsdale, Blea Moor and Dent are on your “what’s cooking” list.
