Network Rail have agreed a plan to repair the section of line closed as a result of a major landslip at Eden Brows between Carlisle and Armathwaite.
Over 500,000 tons of embankment have slipped towards the river Eden below the line as a result of bad weather during December and January.
The work is likely to take many months and as a result buses are replacing trains between Carlisle and Appleby. Trains are running normally between Appleby and Leeds.
To keep customers and the general public updated of developments, Network Rail have setup a dedicated web site at http://www.networkrail.co.uk/carlisle/
