Weekly Exhibit

This week, another cup and saucer from a 15in gauge railway. In 1917, the old 3ft gauge Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway had been converted to a miniature railway by Narrow Gauge Railways Ltd.

The railway carried both freight in the form of granite traffic, and catered for the tourist trade of the Lake District. The new terminus at Dalegarth included a refreshment room with company marked crockery, such as this example of a cup and saucer.
