The scene at Haverthwaite station looking towards Lakeside.

A very tidy station platform, with a good cafe.

Looking in the other direction one sees Haverthwaite west tunnel which is used for the run round loop. The trackbed further west has
been used for road improvements to the A590 preventing rail access to Ulverston.

Fairburn tank locomotive no. 42073 brings the 11.15 train from Lakeside into Haverthwaite station.
