The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway is a 15 inch minimum gauge heritage railway in the Lake District, Cumbria. It's affectionately known as La'al Ratty meaning "little railway" in olde Cumbrian dialect. It runs for seven miles from Ravenglass, by the sea, to Dalegarth Station at the top of the valley with magnificent views down from the fells. The line has been preserved by the Ravenglass and Eskdale Preservation Society, and is run mostly by volunteers. The small size of the carriages and engine resemble a toy train. It enjoys scenic views throughout its journey.
