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.

The Rail User Group represents the views of users of this attractive branch line, and users of the main line station at Oxenholme.  We champion the interests of both visitors and residents.

The Group was a founder member of the Lakes Line Community Rail Partnership and works enthusiastically with the CRP to improve rail travel in this part of southern Lakeland.

On our News page you will find details of any engineering work we know about in the near future and its effects on our timetable, and also details of how to use the Lakes Line to get to special events and attractions in the area.

If you are coming to the Lakes International Comic Art Festival (13th Oct 2017 to 15th Oct 2017) the Lakes Line is a great way to get here.  Don't forget there are regular events on in all the communities served by the Line.

We hope that you enjoy your stay and hope to be seeing you on the Lakes Line soon!
