A group of children from Greenwich House School in Louth recently visited Ludborough station to experience a working steam railway at first hand.
The five to seven year old’s are studying a history project at school about how the coming of the railways changed the way of life in Britain.
After a ride on the train the children and their parents were taken around the engine shed at Ludborough station, where the railway’s volunteers explained how a steam locomotive works.
“The highlight was being able to climb in the cab of the engine called Spitfire”, said the school’s History Teacher, Sandra Brewer. “The railway really is like a living museum and the children thoroughly enjoyed their visit”.
