Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway

This railway was originally part of the Furness Railway's line from Ulverston to Lakeside, which saw a thriving tourist traffic during the period between the wars. The line was closed in 1967, and truncated at Haverthwaite in 1970, so it now operates as a completely isolated stretch of track between its two eponymous stations.
