Attraction Information

The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway journeys from Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park, across the estuary, through the hills, past seven request stops with a 1.40 gradient at times, en route to the final destination some seven miles up the line at Dalegarth for Boot Station.

The journey itself was one of Wainwrights favourites, crossing seven miles of spectacular scenery to the foot of England's highest mountains, the Scafell Range (3,209ft) at their peak.

Steam trains operate every month of the year.

Long ride 5 out of 5 stars

Nice train ride on carriages/train. Our 6 year old loved it. The driver said it was 15mph but I think it was a bit faster. With the kids, tempted to use the open carriages. Mistake I think as the seats got uncomfortable after 30 mins. Better seating in the closed carriages. 50 mins journey each way. Free (tiny) museum at the Ravnsglass station
