    The four major rail routes across the Pennines - Settle to Carlisle, Manchester to Leeds, Blackburn to Bradford and Manchester to Sheffield - traverse some of Britain's wildest and most spectacular scenery. Thanks to the steam preservation movement, there are steam-hauled excursion trains running regularly (albeit infrequently) on all these lines and this selection of over 140 modern colour photographs presents a variety of historic locomotives working against the sometimes challenging gradients in picturesque landscapes across the region.
