Put on your walking boots to celebrate La’al Ratty centenary Special Event Double Header Train 15th July

Join the Museum’s Curator, Peter van Zeller, on Sunday 15 July to discover fascinating stories from the history of the railway and enjoy a guided walk along the long-since closed section of the track from Dalegarth up to Boot Village. The last train ran along this section in the summer of 1918 and the walk will take in the remains of the station and old iron ore workings, and a look at the developments taking place at Eskdale Mill, recently given large HLF grant. The experience will include a return train journey from Ravenglass to Dalegarth with two different steam engines, Katie and River Irt, who are the only two surviving engines to have worked trains to Boot village.
