Irton Road Station sign
Irton Road railway station is a railway station on the 15 in gauge Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway in the Lake District National Park, Cumbria. The station is located 4 miles from Ravenglass and 3 miles from Dalegarth for Boot, and trains take 20 minutes to reach their destinations in either direction from this station. At most weekends and high-season, it is manned by volunteers from the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, who sell tickets from the booking office shelter and can give live train-running information, but are unable to carry out these when trains are due into the station, as they are carrying out safety-critical tasks. This is the only intermediate station where the crossing loop is in the station, consequently there are two platforms. The station opened in 1876.
