|The Furness Railway Company was an independent railway operating
between 1846 and 1923.
Originally conceived as a mineral railway, it later played a major role in the development of the town of Barrow in Furness, and in the development of the Lake District Tourist industry.
The Furness area was very isolated: the only road to reach the area before the coming of the railway was across the treacherous sands of Morecambe Bay. So when local landowners wanted to get their high quality slate and Haematite iron ore to their markets, they looked to build a railway down to the coast, using ships for the onward journey.
Thus was created the Furness Railway, and the town of Barrow in Furness. The railway went on to develop Barrow's iron and steelworks, and shipbuilding industries.
