The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway Preservation Society
  • About us

    The R&ER Preservation Society is pledged to support the Railway Company. It provides financial support, and practical help through the volunteer workforce and the running of its locomotives River Mite and Douglas Ferreira.
  • Get Involved

    We need your help to assist the full-time staff of the Railway. The work is varied and interesting and you would join our existing volunteers who get a great deal of enjoyment from helping to run the railway.
  • Accommodation

    Heywood House is the Society owned accommodation available for those volunteering on the railway. It was completely refurbished in 2009. Heywood House is self-catering hostel style accommodation and is situated in the main street of Ravenglass, just a few minutes' walk from the railway.
