Nowadays Garsdale's biggest claim to fame isn't the train line itself but a life-size statue of an incredibly loyal dog.
Graham Nuttall was one of the founding members of the campaign to save the Settle to Carlisle line and his Border Collie dog, Ruswarp, printed his paw on the petition to save the line.
On 20th January Graham went walking in the Welsh Mountains and disappeared. On 7th April his body was found, with Ruswarp still standing over his owner's body, 11 weeks later. He died after attending Graham's future.
The sculpture by Joel Walker was erected 20 years after the line was saved, to commemorate both Graham and Ruswarp.
The station waiting room was refurbished and is now well-kept. Apparently it was once used for Anglican church services! Train services to Garsdale station are regular but not particularly frequent, so perhaps passengers are appreciative of some extra reading material - there's a set of Encyclopedia Britannica in the waiting rooms!
