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, we enjoyed two weeks of heritage trains on the Lakes Line, welcomed by visitors and locals alike.

From Monday 2nd July Northern will operate a mixed train and bus service.  The timetable, at least till Friday 6th July, is available at:


Scroll down below to below the map, and there is a long list of temporary timetables and the dates of operations.

Please contact LLRUG if you find the new Northern timetable does not work out.  For more hints about reporting difficulties, see our LLRUG News page.
