Lost Railways of Cumbria

About this book

This well written and excellently researched book brings to life the history of Cumbria's railways.  Modern photographs accompany those from earlier times, together with specially drawn maps to help explore many of the old lines and stations that have survived.

From the very beginning, the geography of Cumbria conspired to prevent the spread of railways. The majority of lines were built to transport freight, but many developed passenger services. Sadly the railway age was not to last, local demand was simply not enough to keep many of the lines in operation and the services were doomed. Happily, some lines have been preserved by enthusiastic societies and reopened sections of track flourish.
