Lakeshore To Lakeland

A Fond Farewell to GM Ryan Lamb

As one chapter ends, another one begins! This March will see us bid a fond farewell to our General Manager, Ryan Lamb, as he departs for his new job in Cumbria; driving on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. Starting as a volunteer in 2006, Ryan joined our dedicated team of staff in 2011. A man of many talents, from locomotive painting to trackwork, becoming a driver on the Ravenglass line has forever been a childhood dream of his.

To mark an end to his 13 years of sterling service to the railway, we are proud to present "Lakeshore to Lakeland", a weekend long celebration over the 9th and 10th March 2019 featuring:
- An intensive service featuring all available locomotives.
- Double and Triple Heading.
- A variety of train formations including demonstration goods and mixed services.

Culminating with his last train on Sunday 10th March, join us as we say a heartfelt goodbye to Ryan and wish him every good fortune in Ravenglass!
