    Festive Shopping

    Did you know that there is less than 50 days to go until Christmas? Panicking about presents yet? Well this year why not avoid the hustle and bustle of the High Street and scout for presents in the comfortable surroundings of the Railway's 'Spirit of Christmas Gift Fair'? The Gift Fair will be held on the 10th - 11th November 2012 at both Ravenglass & Dalegarth Stations and handmade gifts from local charities, artisans and craftsmen will be available to purchase.

Don't forget that this is a prime opportunity to buy your very own La'al Ratty Christmas Cake - the perfect centrepiece for your Christmas dining table! A list of Gift Fair exhibitors will be available to view on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway website from Tuesday 6th November. The 'Gift Fair' will be open from 11:00am - 4:00pm at both Ravenglass and Dalegarth Stations over the course of the weekend.
