Ravenglass & Eskdale Steam Railway

The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is one of the oldest and longest narrow gauge railways in England, known affectionately as La’al Ratty meaning “little railway“ in olde Cumbrian dialect. It was 105 years ago in April 1913 that the original 3ft line closed and in 1915 the new 15in La’al Ratty was born. Our heritage steam engines transport passengers from Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Lake District National Park, to Dalegarth for Boot some 210ft above sea level.

The journey takes 40 minutes each way and passes seven intermediate request stops which are perfect for walking. Our cosy covered and open top carriages provide the best of comfort and views as you travel up the line. Our main season runs from March until October however we operate trains during November and December for Christmas!

En route keep your eyes peeled for Greylag Geese, Curlew, Shelduck, Red Squirrels and Buzzards. On arrival at Dalegarth there is something for everyone, with our café serving homemade treats, a gift shop with plenty of pocket money gifts as well as great trails and walks to explore in this beautiful corner of the Lake District National Park.

The journey itself was one of Alfred Wainwright’s favourites; crossing through seven miles of spectacular scenery within sight of England’s highest mountains, the Scafell Range. ‘Britain’s Favourite View’, Wastwater is just around the corner.
