Looking back along the track from the station at Lakeside Windermere.
The Lakeside station was built as an extension of the line from Ulverston to Newby Bridge, and opened in 1872. At this time, the Furness Railway, also bought the Windermere Steam Ferry company, and made the ferry transferable with the train. Originally, the station had two platforms, when the services stopped on the line in 1965, the station fell into disrepair, and in 1978, British Railways sold off the steamboat service to a private company.The station reopened as part of the heritage Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway in 1973, with trains running to the station at Haverthwaite, about an eighteen-minute journey.
