Keeping the age of steam alive!

Help us reach Louth!

Support our ‘Make Tracks for Louth’ campaign and help us restore the original railway to Louth. A lot of hard work and enthusiasm has secured the future of the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway to date, but to extend the passenger line back to Louth and make the connection to North Thoresby once again would be fabulous for both visitors and the local community.

It costs nearly £280,000 to lay a mile of track so you can see the scale of the challenge. We need to raise funds to purchase materials such as ballast, rails and sleepers before we can progress. Any donation, no matter how large or small, will be gratefully received.

£1 buys 1 steel key

£5 buys 1 fishplate bolt

£30 buys 1 sleeper

£50 buys 1 pair of fishplates

£60 buys 1 ton of gravel

£150 buys 50 metres of drainage pipe

£308 buys 1 roll of membrane

£600 buys 1 length of rail

      Well worth the £12 each, so much effort has gone into the experience. Santa knew every childs name on the train, friendly people helping and lots of singing
