CKP Railways plc has made an application in the second round of the Regional Growth Fund for a grant towards the eventual re-opening of the Keswick to Penrith Railway. http://www.keswickrailway.com/index.html
Funding is sought to get through the next legal and development stages, then hopefully begin work on the ground.
According to the CKP website "The application seeks funding to build on the technical and environmental work paid for by our supporters so far"
About £400,000 has been raised to date

Keswick Station has survived almost intact and is a constant reminder of when the line was active.
