It may not be the Orient Express but an old railway carriage could soon transport murder mystery enthusiasts to a bygone era.

Plans have been lodged to turn a redundant railway guard’s carriage into a two-person holiday unit at Low Akeld House.

The carriage was brought to Low Akeld by former owner Chris Donald, of Viz Comics fame, who also restored the station masters house, booking office and platform.

A planning report on behalf of current owners Mr and Mrs Dark said: “With a certain amount of imagination, a speciality small holiday unit can be created to ‘go back in time’ with furnishings which reflect an Agatha Christie novel.”
