Cumbria’s Lost Railways

The End of the Line

Andrew Leitch



Immerse yourself in the visual treasure trove of railway history in this unique programme.

Archive film, lost for decades and recently rediscovered, provided the inspiration for this fascinating journey into the past of many of the lost lines of Cumbria. Hundred miles of track have been closed but this programme brings many of them back to life. Travel once again on the Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith line – the only railway to actually traverse the Lake District. It’s all aboard the train from Carlisle to Silloth as we trundle through the little stations on the way to the purpose-built seaside resort. This film also explores the industrial railways of West Cumbria, now long gone. We also go over Stainmore Pass and visit Lakeside station on the shores of Windermere.
Cumbria’s railway history is more popular than ever and this unique film will enable you to take a journey into some of Cumbria’s past.
