The Lake District Railway(shortened to LDR) is a standard gauge (4'8½") railway running along the northern shores of the Fairleymere lake in Cumbria England. It was first created in (Insert undetermined date here) as a government-funded joining of two railways in the region. The railways involved were the Furness Railway and the London and North Western Railway (LNWR) who were in depute at the time. In 1923, it became part of London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS). In 1948 this became the "London-Midland Region of British Railways", but this term was not that accurate as the railway was not in London or the Midlands. With closer in the early 1950s, it officially became the Lake District Railway Again.

The railway's works are at Bluemoor. The Railways headquarters are at Norbrough.

The railway's motto is "per vapor colimus", which, translated from Latin, means "Through Steam we serve."
