The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway opened on May 24th 1875, its purpose being to ferry iron ore from workings near Boot to the coast at Ravenglass. On November 20th 1876 the first passengers were carried. Now a top tourist attraction for visitors to Cumbria, you can enjoy the nostalgia of Steam Travel with a trip through the Lake District National Park. The journey will take you from Cumbria's only coastal village, through two beautiful valleys to the foot of England's highest mountains.

Eskdale and its surroundings make ideal walking territory for cyclists, ramblers and strollers alike. Each train has one carriage designed to carry cycles, and visitors to the area can now get outdoors and explore the beauty of the Western Lakes with electric bicycle hire from nearby Muncaster Castle. There are eight designated electric bike charging points throughout the Western Lakes, including points at Ravenglass and Dalegarth Stations.
