Travel

By Rail: Skegness / 3 miles

The railway is a 60cm narrow gauge heritage railway situated in Skegness on the beautiful Lincolnshire Coast. On summer operating days you can ride in one of the historic railway carriages, pulled by one of the historic diesel locomotives, or on certain days by the Peckett steam locomotive 'Jurassic'.

The diesel locos are based on designs for WW1 trench railways, which later powered transport for agriculture and industry throughout Lincolnshire and the wider world. 'Jurassic' was built in 1903 and spent her working life at a cement works in Southam, near Rugby. Following restoration at the LCLR she returned to steam last year.

Our collection of historic WW1 trench railway vehicles are demonstrated on gala days, and can normally be viewed on operating days.
