The Lincolnshire Wolds Railway has a comprehensive range of both steam and diesel locomotives in its home fleet. A large number of guest steam locos from heritage railways across the country have also visited Ludborough for special events.
When Jinty 47406 visited the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway for the 2011 Easter Gala she became the first steam loco to face south on a scheduled passenger train on the line for 50 years – the last being Britannia 70040 ‘Clive of India’, which pulled the last steam-hauled Cleethorpes – Kings Cross service in November 1962. This was almost certainly be the first time ever a Midland Jinty has visited East Lincolnshire. Based at the Great Central Railway, 47406 was restored by owner Roger Hibbert and returned to service at Loughborough last year.
