Keeping the age of steam alive!

LWR Image Galleries

We have an extensive collection of images from the early days of the East Lincolnshire Railway through to recent Running Days and Special Events organised by LWR. For the enthusiasts, there is also a gallery showing our Rolling Stock and also the various Guest Locomotives we have had the pleasure of welcoming to Ludborough over the years.

Steam Days and Events

Here you can look through photographs taken around Ludborough Station on Running Days and also at the Special Events which are organised by LWR throughout the year.

If you are thinking of giving us a visit you can find the dates for our Running Days and forthcoming Special Events on our calendar pages.

Back In Time

fascinating images of  staff, workers, shunting horses, and  engines blowing plumes of steam and smoke, evoke memories of days gone by and help tell the story of the East Lincolnshire Railway.

A history of the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway, from the inception of  the East Lincolnshire Railway in 1845 through to the abandonment of the line in 1980 and the subsequent formation of the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway Society can be found on the History of LWR page.

Locos & Rolling Stock

Apart from our resident locomotives, LWR has has been fortunate to be able to secure on loan visits by some rare and interesting guest locos from other heritage railway groups throughout the UK.

Here you can see photographs of our own Spitfire, the Mardy Monster and other engines, as well as read about their working histories.
