Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway

Reputedly the most beautiful train journey in England, this 15-inch, narrow gauge railway carries passengers along seven miles of scenic track, from the old Roman Port of Ravenglass (the only coastal village in the Lake District National Park) along the Eskdale Valley to Dalegarth during a 40 minute ride.

The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway is one of the oldest and longest narrow gauge railways in England. It is affectionately and locally known as 'La'al Ratty', which means 'little railway' in olde Cumbrian dialect. The line was originally built in 1873 and boasts a fascinating history.

The driver in the PiP is about 6ft tall, not an easy place to work.
