- Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway
The Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway is a
heritage railwayin Cumbria, England. The line runs from Haverthwaitevia Newby Bridgeto Lakeside at the southern end of Windermere. Some services are timed to connect with sailings of the diesel excursion vessels or steam vessels on Windermere, sailing up to Bownessand Ambleside.
The railway is a former branch line of the
Furness Railway(FR), and there is a train-boat connection that was established in 1868. The railway's locomotive fleet includes FR no. 20, Britain's oldest working standard gaugesteam locomotive, which was built in 1863. The route of the connecting length from Haverthwaite to the junction at Ulverstonwas obliterated by road widening after British Railwaysclosed it (to passengers in 1965 and to all traffic two years later) and before it was opened as a heritage railway in 1973.
