“In 1968, when I first visited Carnforth station and the adjacent steam shed to film the last few months of working steam, the famous station restaurant had already closed down and the whole place already had a rather tired look. Rather improbably, some 45 years later, I now have the pleasure of working from the splendid, fully restored Carnforth station where Tele Rail is now based. Back then, the thought of being able to save this remarkable station and transform it into a thriving heritage centre and working station would have seemed fanciful to say the least. The full story of the restoration of Carnforth Station is the subject of this brand new Telerail programme.” Steve le Cheminant MD Telerail
