RAIL enthusiasts made the final journey on a Class 37 train from Carlisle.

The farewell return journey, organised by Northern, marked the end of almost five decades of service for the diesel-electric locomotives, which were removed from the track on December 28.

Passengers enjoyed the trip between Carlisle and Carnforth on Friday.

Keepsake tickets were produced for the event which was expected to be in high demand.

Jonathan Allen, who captured the moment the train left Carlisle, said: "To enthusiasts, who have travelled to Cumbria from all over the UK, it recreates a golden age of British railways, when travel was unhurried, the ham sandwiches were curled and passengers did not need a degree in mathematics to understand the fare structure."
