Welcome to Lakeland’s oldest, friendliest and longest most scenic railway

Join us as we journey from Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park, across the estuary, through the hills, past seven request stops with a 1:55 gradient at times, en route to our final destination some seven miles up the line to Dalegarth for Boot Station. The journey itself was one of Wainwright’s favorites, crossing seven miles of spectacular scenery to the foot of England’s highest mountains, the Scafell Range (3,209ft) at their peak.

On arrival there is something for everyone, with plenty of trails and walks to explore in this beautiful corner of the Lake District National Park with ‘Britain’s Favourite View’, Wastwater, just around the corner. Whether you are young or old, and the weather is hot or cold we have a wide range of facilities at both ends of the line plus our engines haul a range of open/closed carriages to guarantee a great day out.

This is the just the start of your adventure right here!
