The Furness Railway was a railway company operating in the Furness area of Lancashire in North West England. The company was established on 23 May 1844 when the Furness Railway Act was passed by Parliament. The line, as originally laid, was intended principally for mineral traffic (slate and iron ore) and extended from Kirkby-in-Furness to Dalton-in-Furness; this was later extended to Rampside and a later line was built from Dalton to Barrow. That portion was opened in August 1846. Passenger traffic began in December 1846.
Subsequent extensions took the railway to Ulverston in April 1854; the Whitehaven and Furness Junction Railway was taken over in 1865 thus extending the Furness Railway to Whitehaven, Carnforth (where the Furness linked with the London and North Western Railway and thence to Lancaster, Coniston and Lakeside). The line was linked to Lancaster on 27 August 1857 by the Ulverston and Lancaster Railway, which was bought out by the Furness Railway in 1862.
