New carriage 'Ruth' to be delivered soon

We are pleased to announce that our brand new carriage 'Ruth' will soon be joining the fleet here at Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway. 

Ruth is the last carriage to arrive in the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) project that started in 2016. Built by the engineering team at Festiniog Railway Company, 'Ruth' is a beautiful semi-enclosed Directors bespoke carriage. With extra head room, comfortable padded seats inside for eight people in two separate compartments and semi-open ‘balcony’ seating with a roof for two on each end, it is also the first carriage at the Railway to have USB speakers. It has sliding partition panels in the middle splitting the space into two separate internal compartments or it can be hired as a whole carriage for up to 12 people. 

Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for more details about her arrival and when she will be ready for service!
