We have several intermediate stations along the line and in our busier times, these are often manned. It is an advantage if you are guard as you will have a knowledge of our tickets and prices etc. This makes the process of selling the tickets so much easier and this can be both a pleasant and rewarding day in the Cumbrian countryside. It helps in a big way to keeping the trains running to time. It offers an excellent chance to meet our passengers and help them not only getting tickets, but also answering queries on walks and the local area.
