Historic, fully restored & working Steam & Diesel railway, including the World War 1 collection used on the front line in France. The railway is a chance to "travel in time" back to a bygone age, when light railways were also used cross large scale potato farms in Lincolnshire before tractors were widely available and over the last 60 years, transporting holidaymakers and tourists on the Lincolnshire Coast. The railway has won national awards for high quality restoration works and has a reputation for being "the friendly railway".
The Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway was the very first volunteer railway in the world to be constructed on bare land, i.e. where no railway had existed before, whereas most heritage railways run on ex-industrial, quarry or British Railways lines that have closed in the past and been taken over by volunteers and charitable trusts. In fact, they have done it twice !. The railway was firstly located at Humberston (Cleethorpes), running trains for tourists through "The Fitties" holiday site. In 1985, the lease from Grimsby Council expired and they were given notice to leave. In 1992, they were offered the chance to re-locate to Skegness Water Leisure Park and have not looked back since, even though everything had to be re-built again.
