ENGINE SHED TOURS – Take a look behind the scenes

Planned Engine Shed Tours 2021          Sun 10th Oct    –   Sun 21st Nov

Departs from side of ticket office: 12.30pm & 2.30pm – No Booking Required

On selected days throughout the year, we invite you on one of our guided tours of the engine shed included in your ticket.   

See where we carry out the maintenance and restoration work on our locomotive fleet, hear about our stock and the past working life of our locomotives and have access to an area not usually accessible to the public.

We are proud to be one of the few heritage railways that allows visitors a look behind the scenes, so join us and enjoy a day out at the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway.

Our engine shed tours are included in your ticket and depart from the side of the ticket office. Tours last around 45 minutes and are at 12.30pm & 2.30pm after the train arrives back at Ludborough, so please just turn up at the time, no booking required.

You will stop at several places on the way down to the engine shed for photo opportunities, while our guide Marc gives you a commentary of the various stock and then proceed down to the engine shed where you have access to an area not usually accessible to the public to see and hear more about the work behind the scenes.

**Engine shed visits maybe able to be arranged on other running days without the commentary, subject to staff availability – Please ask on the day**
