The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway

The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway runs for seven miles from the Lake District National Park’s only coastal village of Ravenglass in the Western Lake District, through hidden Miterdale, to the grandeur of the Eskdale valley.

The terminus at Dalegarth for Boot – home to a new visitor centre – nestles at the foot of England’s highest mountains. For all though it’s the magic of steam, including the world’s oldest working 15 inch gauge locomotive, that adds that little bit extra to one of the Lake District’s top attractions.

There are a number of options for arriving at either Dalegarth or Ravenglass stations by mainline train from Lancaster or by car over the winding Hardknott Pass. See the Ravenglass and Eskdale Website for details.
