Every now and then, a train would take its passengers over the Ribblehead Viaduct. Some looking customers on a Virgin Pendelino would have been getting an unexpected but very pleasant detour this afternoon. Pendolinos are of course electric trains – you can just make out the diesel engine at the front which is hauling it along the unelectrified train line.
