Keeping the age of steam alive!

Travel back in time with a ride on a steam train!

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, visit the museum, enjoy some great food in the Steaming Kettle Buffet and find out more about the locos from our experts in the engine shed.

LOCOMOTIVES & ROLLING STOCK

At Lincolnshire Wolds Railway, you will find a variety of diesel and steam engines that will transport you along the line. On special days, look out for our guest locos chugging up and down the track. Travel in style in our restored carriages for a truly authentic experience.

TICKET TYPES

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation Pre-booking is essential and are available via the website:

Fares: £20 per compartment (up to 6 people)


FOOD & DRINK

You won’t go home hungry after a day at our railway. After a ride on the train, head over to the play park with a picnic. Or, perhaps enjoy a good old bacon buttie, sandwiches or a slice of homemade cake at the Steaming Kettle Buffet situated in a stationary railway carriage.


BROWSE THE MUSEUM

The railway at Ludborough, which was part of the East Lincolnshire route running from Boston to Grimsby, is steeped in history. The collection of artefacts contributes to our understanding of the development of the railways in this region. There’s an array of cast iron notices, railway lamps, tickets, uniform buttons, advertising signs, name boards which used to be seen on station platforms and paper ephemera, all from an era that is now just a distant memory.


DISCOVER WHAT HAPPENS IN THE ENGINE SHED

While you are at Ludborough don’t forget to visit the engine shed, where we carry out the maintenance and restoration work on our locomotive fleet. We are proud to be one of the few heritage railways that allows visitors a look behind the scenes. The shed is open to the public on most running days when staff are in attendance. We also offer guided tours – please ask for more information when you visit.

Browse the well-stocked gift shop and choose from a selection of merchandise and toys to take home a souvenir of your visit.
