A great day out for the whole family!

Only a short distance from Grimsby, the seaside resort of Cleethorpes and the historic market town of Louth, Lincolnshire Wolds Railway is a great day out for everyone. Ride on the train, enjoy some great food in the Steaming Kettle Buffet and find out more about the locos from our experts in the engine shed.

Our heritage steam trains run between Ludborough and North Thoresby and work is now in progress to extend the line southwards towards Louth. What visitors to the railway see today is a result of all the time and effort that a small, but dedicated band of volunteers have put in over many years.

We are the only standard gauge heritage steam railway in Lincolnshire. It is very important to us to keep our heritage line running and keeping steam alive, we are living history with a purpose to recreate and preserve railway scenes of the past.

We look forward to welcoming you to our friendly railway.
