A visit to the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway

by Shaun Taylor December. 09, 2019 164 views

The railway is a preserved railway in the Lake District running on part of an old Furness Railway Branch Line.

Here we can see Cumbria leaving Haverthwaite station. Cumbria is an St Austerity Tank engine, built at Hunslet in 1953

Cumbria is painted in the colours of the Furness Railway

Because the line isn't as popular as some other preserved railways the photographer gets a few more opportunities to get some better photographs

The line finishes at Lakeside where you can connect with a lakes ferry, if it is a nice day there is nothing better

The sheds are also open for a small charge and you can photograph some of the more historic engines that don't run as often

I really like the colour and composition of the Cumbria in the rain.
