Ravenglass to Dalegarth

By Irishkate  
The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway is a 15 in minimum gauge heritage railway in Cumbria, England. The 7 miles line runs from Ravenglass to Dalegarth Station near Boot in the valley of Eskdale, in the Lake District. At Ravenglass the line ends at Ravenglass railway station on the Cumbrian Coast Line.
Just back from a Rail Discoveries holiday - we had a ride on this dinky little train from Ravenglass to Dalegarth. My friend who is nearly 6" tall could hardly get into the tiny carriages. (Should have read 6' of course!)
The scenery was stunning but being inside I couldn't capture any of it.
Many thanks for recent V&C - catch up this week.

It looks very well spruced up train with all the brass-work and paint-work gleaming. Was the driver wearing an evening suit?

A lovely vehicle beautifully captured.

Im guessing that your friend Id six feet tall (6) rather than six inches tall (6).

A pristine locomotive, superbly captured, Kate - excellent detail and lovely, rich colours.
A railway I'd love to visit - I hope you upload more images.

Lovely shot, Kate. I like the cobalt blue and just the right amount of steam to go with it.

Lovely capture of this well cared for little train, we used to stay in a cottage in Boot when my children were small.
