If you’re looking for a Christmas gift idea that’s a little bit different, then the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway has just the thing – a ride in the cab of one of our steam locomotives.
We are offering the opportunity to ride on the loco footplate on the train journey from Ludborough to North Thoresby and back so that participants gain first hand experience of what it was like in the good old days of steam.
If you ever fancied being a signalman, we also give visitors the chance to spend half a day learning the ropes in the signal box at Ludborough station, where you get to pull the levers and open the crossing gates.
Our footplate ride and signal box experience are very popular and make the perfect gift whatever the occasion, in fact some people make a day of it and do both! You can purchase a personalised gift voucher for the footplate ride or signal box experience here and we will send the voucher along with information on arranging a convenient date and time. That’s Christmas sorted!
