Here are some of the rarer sights you may see on the railway, locomotives visiting the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway as well as the resident favourites. You will see veterans from the start of 15″ gauge railways, still roaring along the rails today and the new addition to the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway locomotive fleet, the powerful diesel Douglas Ferreira. The video takes you on the footplate and at the lineside for some unique footage, with trains running specially for the camera. It is never to be repeated, insight into the workings of this much loved and well cared for little tourist railway and offers an hour of viewing pleasure.
