In the early part of the 20th century Lincolnshire had a comprehensive railway system and there were very few communities more than a few miles from the nearest train station. Sadly, nearly all these lines have now disappeared from the railway map.
You can find out more about the county’s railway history and see behind the scenes when the trains aren’t running at the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway during its Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days Weekend.
We will be opening the doors at Ludborough station on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September between 11am and 3pm for the event titled “Learning the Lines”.
There will be maps of the former railway routes, a photographic display of old local railway scenes, static displays of locomotives and rolling stock and guided tours of the maintenance facilities at 12 noon and 1.30pm. The museum, shop and buffet will also be open.
Those over 18s who always wanted to be an engine driver can even try their hand at the controls of one of the railway’s diesel locomotives for only £10.
