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.
