The Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway (LCLR) is a 60 cm narrow gauge heritage railway situated in Skegness on the beautiful Lincolnshire Coast. On our summer operating days you can ride in one of our historic railway carriages, pulled by one of our historic diesel locomotives. These are based on designs for WW1 trench railways, which later powered transport for agriculture and industry throughout Lincolnshire and the wider world. Our steam locomotive "Jurassic" is expected to return to steam in 2017, operating trains on special days - dates will be listed on this site when confirmed.

We also have a collection of historic WW1 trench railway vehicles at the railway. These are demonstrated on gala days, and can normally be viewed on operating days. More details of the collection on the LCLR Historic Vehicles Trust page.

The 2017 season. We hope to have our 0-6-0 Peckett loco back in steam, hauling passenger trains, for the first time since 1985. The boiler has just received its 10 year insurance certificate (June 2017), and dependent on how the rebuild progresses we hope to announce Jurassics` return to steam here on this website.

Jurassic rebuild nears completion!

24th June 2017 - With boiler lagging now in place and first coat of gloss on - we hope that she will be in service before too long!
