Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway

The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway is the oldest, longest and one of the most scenic heritage railways in the Lake District.

Heritage

The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway is the oldest, longest and one of the most scenic heritage railways in the Lake District, journeying for seven miles from the coastal village of Ravenglass through two valleys to the foot of England’s highest mountains.

1870's

Originally built in the mid 1870s to ferry iron ore, and, later, passenger traffic, the line was saved from closure in the 1960s and became part of a thriving local partnership between a family business and a preservation society.

Trains Running

Today, running up to seven trains a day in peak season – using a variety of heritage locomotives and rolling stock – with a full hop-on-hop-off service, it enables visitors to enjoy stunning local Lakeland scenery.

Opening Hours

Timetables vary throughout the year. Please contact the railway for details.
