Running on Rails
The story of the Settle to Carlisle railway told in song. Learn about the “town” of Batty Green that developed entirely for the railway workers. How many miles of track are there between Settle and Carlisle? Only music can help you remember a figure like that, but your children will as soon as they know the first song. It could be invaluable for your Victorians study unit in National Curriculum History!
Includes: Vocal score (with piano), Performance and backing CD & Photocopiable lyrics, Narration.
Seventy Two Miles of Rail, Pennine Weather Song, Batty Green, Dynamite Calypso, We’ll be Running on Rails.
Composer: Jan Holdstock
