The DalesRail service on Sunday 18th August is cancelled due to a shortage of train crew at Arriva Rail North’s Blackpool North depot.
It is likely that this will be the case for the remaining Sundays of the season but we are advising that you check to see if it is running before making any plans. It is likely that the Lancashire Rail Ramblers will withdraw the guided walks for the remaining Sundays even if the service runs.

Updates will also be posted on Community Rail Lancashire’s Twitter feed on @crl_live
