Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway

The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway in Cumbria is one of the oldest minimum gauge heritage railways in England. Passengers journey from Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park, to Dalegarth in the scenic valley of Eskdale, on a beautifully scenic, steam-hauled journey through seven miles of beautiful track. 

The original Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway was built with the purpose of hauling ore from local mines and opened on May 24th 1875. After locals expressed a desire for a passenger service through the valley, the line was upgraded and the first passenger train ran in November 1876. The original railway closed in April 1913 due to its poor condition and was rebuilt and reopened in 1915 as the railway we travel on today. Today, it is a popular tourist attraction for visitors to the Lake District, offering fantastic scenic views across verdant fields, undulating hills and the highest mountain range in England.
