LAKESIDE & HAVERTHWAITE RAILWAY
A heritage railway running steam and diesel locomotives on a former branch line of the Furness Railway. The line is just over 3 miles long, between Lakeside Station at the southern tip of Lake Windermere and Haverthwaite (journey time about 20 minutes). Steamers run to Lakeside from Windermere and Ambleside. At Haverthwaite Station are all things railway, including engine sheds where locos can be inspected. Thomas the Tank Engine has been known to visit sometimes.
