Bassenthwaite Lake Station

Recommended Posts

Now this is something I didn't know about.

 

Replica French loco and coaches from the Murder On The Orient Express film turn up in Cumbria to be a part of a new café/restaurant.

I do wonder , knowing the film industry if the entire thing is held together with gaffer tape!

A friend who lives near Carlisle sent me a few photos of this loco recently, it’s been installed at the old Bassenthwaite station together with what appears to be some Wagon Lits coaches and a fourgon.

Shame it can’t be steamed!

I hadn't realised anything had survived of it at all, thought the station had completely ended up under the A66. Googling it shows the building survived after all, albeit as a shell - and I must've been past it a lot too.
