Haverthwaite station
Haverthwaite station
Haverthwaite station on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite railway.

The locomotive is 'Cumbria', which was delivered as WD 194 to the Longmoor Army Stores Depot in southern England as part of the Strategic War Reserve. Despite being brand new, it was immediately put into store! Two years later, in 1955 when the Stores Depot closed, the engine was transferred to Bicester in Oxfordshire where it was put into traffic in 1958. After ten years of service, it was completely overhauled before being put back into store again. It later spent time at Shoeburyness. After a quiet career with the Army, the locomotive was purchased from the Ministry of Defence in July 1973 by the Lakeside Railway Society.
