Ribblehead viaduct

As viaducts go the Ribblehead is not very long but its 400m length and 32m above the valley floor at its highest point against the majestic background of Ingleborough the second highest mountain in the Yorkshire dales makes it an impressive location to watch steam locomotives going over. It is made up of twenty-four arches of 14m span with the north end of the viaduct 4m higher in elevation than the south end.
We had traveled up to see Class K4 61994 The Great Marquess hauling the Lancaster to Carlisle (THE FELLSMAN) train and were not disappointed.
