The Settle Line

'Twas in the year of 'Sixty-nine,
The railway said they'd build a line,
This mountain struggle mile by mile
Would stretch from Settle to Carlisle.

The "Midland" said, "A route we lack
To get the Scottish traffic back,"
The job will be of no mean feat,
Through granite rock, and moss of peat.
