SD3787 : Behind the buffers

taken 14 years ago, near to Lakeside, Cumbria, Great Britain

Behind the buffers.
Behind the buffers.
Hard working steam trains haul trains on this steeply graded railway. Comfortable coaching ensures passengers have a pleasant and leisurely journey through contrasting lake and river scenes of the Leven Valley. Trains run from April through to the end of October.

Originally this branch line of the Furness Railway carried passengers and freight from Lakeside to Ulverston and Barrow, then south to Lancashire. This was closed by British Rail in the 1960's, and now the only part remaining is the 3.5 miles from Haverthwaite, through Newby Bridge to the terminus at Lakeside.
