The partnership includes the train operating company, local authorities and local businesses both large and small.You will see much evidence of the Energy Coast with wind turbines, gas platforms far out to sea and the ever changing face of Sellafield.The Cumbrian Coast Line Community Rail Partnership was established in 2008 and aims to promote the line and improve the services and stations along its 132 km/82 mile length.
The Cumbrian Coast Line, as its name suggests, hugs the scenic coastline between Carlisle and Barrow-in-Furness.
For much of the route, the line runs very close to the coast and links the waters of the Solway with those of Morecambe Bay; both sites of special scientific interest (SSSI).
Many of the railway lines, not just here but across the world, came from Workington, almost mid-way along the line.
At one end of the line is Carlisle, dating from its time as a centre of Roman power on Hadrian's Wall and now the county town for Cumbria.
Not only is this line abounding in coastal scenery but it also runs through the Lake District National Park and offers views of the famous fells and the rolling pastures of the Solway Plain and Furness Peninsula.The line also traces many thousands of years of history as it runs close to ancient British stone circles, the western extension of Hadrian's Wall, historic ports and centres of mining and industry.
