The Leeds-Morecambe Community Rail Partnership (LMCRP) is looking in detail into the future of The Bentham Line.
The Bentham Line joins national campaign encouraging people to ‘Go Green by Train’ to help tackle climate emergency.
Alongside national campaigns by Rail Operators, the Leeds-Morecambe Community Rail Partnership (LMCRP) has launched their own promotional video for the Bentham Line, as the route is known, and encourage people to return to rail travel.
As part of their community project on the Bentham Line with Northern and the Leeds-Morecambe Community Rail Partnership, the 2019/20 Year in Industry students created a colourful and imaginative story for young children about a journey along our scenic line.
Students have prepared nine station information panels under their chosen theme, ‘Get Nature Back on Track’, which also reflected their keen interest in important ‘green energy’ and sustainability ideas.
Government White Paper, the Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail, released which proposes a wide range of developments to reinvigorate the rail industry.
Local communities along the Bentham Line turned out in strength to view a test run of the famous steam locomotive Flying Scotsman.
As Covid-19 restrictions are being gradually relaxed the number of services on the Bentham Line will increase from 16th May 2021.
