In a bid to encourage more people from the region to come and enjoy the sights and sounds of steaming through the stunning scenery of the Western Lake District, Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway have extended their Residents Pass to include all CA and LA postcodes. Launched to coincide with railway opening on the 16 February for the 2019 season, it means people living across three counties can now access a 20% discount of standard train fares, from Lancaster in the south to Carlisle and beyond in the north, Whitehaven and Barrow on the west coast to Sedbergh in the Yorkshire Dales National Park in the east. The card entitles the named person plus up to three others to benefit from the discount, so it is perfect for a day out with friends and family and it also provides 10% off full price retail and café purchases at the railway. The Railway Museum at Ravenglass has free entry and is a ‘must see’ with fascinating interactive displays that bring to life the history of the railway.
