Welcome to the Lakes Line Rail User Group Website. Here you will be able to find information about the Lakes Line, details about the group,
membership and much more...

The Lakes Line runs from Oxenholme station on the West Coast Main Line through the ancient market town of Kendal, and the villages of Burneside and Staveley, to the bustling town of Windermere, poised above England’s longest lake.

Thanks to West Coast Railways of Carnforth, and much negotiation by Tim Farron MP, there are trains running on the Lakes Line again.  It has all been arranged at great speed, and the timetable below only runs till Friday 22nd June.

It is great news that there are trains on the branch again, even though it is a reduced service compared to the full timetable.  On its first day of operation, it was clear from the smiles of passengers that they welcomed the train.  The Rail Replacement Bus service arranged by Northern is still in operation.
