This weekend hundreds of delegates are descending on Carlisle to celebrate its influence.

The Carlisle Railway History Conference is a three day event looking at the importance of the city's station and the railways that made Carlisle one of the most important stations of the day, serving England and Scotland and employing more than 4,000 workers.
