Ravenglass & Eskdale
Join us as we journey from Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park, across the estuary, through the hills, past seven request stops with a 1:40 gradient at times, en route to our final destination some seven miles up the line to Dalegarth for Boot Station. The journey itself was one of Wainwright’s favourites, crossing seven miles of spectacular scenery to the foot of England’s highest mountains, the Scafell Range (3,209ft) at their peak.
Please note that dogs are welcome to travel on the railway (small charge applies) and are also welcome in some of our buildings.
Find out more about the engines in our engine shed. We have four steam locomotives in regular service, ranging from River Irt, the oldest working 15" gauge locomotive in the world, to the mighty strength of Northern Rock.
We care about our environment and want to share this information with our passengers. Find out more about our Green Days Out with Northern Rail through tickets. Better by Train !
