About Ribble Valley Rambler
Community Rail Lancashire, working with Arriva Rail North (Northern), continue to operate the Ribble Valley Rambler service during the winter months when the full DalesRail service is not running.
The service operates between Preston and Hellifield but is currently operating as a replacement bus service connecting at Hellifield into the first north bound service from Leeds to Carlisle. The service then returns back to Preston. In the afternoon the bus will work back to Hellifield arriving in time to meet the lunchtime train from Carlisle to Leeds and then run back through to Blackpool North.
