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”
