hearsay Promoted by the Midland Railway.
72 difficult miles.
Notice the engineering skill by which the 7 miles of almost level line from Blea Moor to Garsdale are set out, running on the contour of one valley then another at about 1110 feet altitude. This necessitated two large viaducts and two tunnels, but speed on this line was important, it was the Midland's mainline route from London to Scotland.

hearsay The manager of the Midland Railway, James Allport:-
If I had one work in my life that gave me more anxiety than another, it was the Settle-Carlisle line.
James Allport and the Chief Engineer, John Crossley, made a preliminary survey of the route on foot, walking over the moors from Settle mosts of the way to Carlisle, in 1865.
